“This year’s Cop on a Rooftop broke all of our previous fundraising records,” said Deputy Chief Gruen. “And I can’t say enough about the continued support we receive from Todd Baryl and Docu-Shred.  We are very appreciative of everyone’s participation and support working together for this great cause.”
