California Police Chief- Fall 2013 - Page 27

Why is this cop in a chicken suit? Irvine Police Lt. Mike Hallinan rappelled down a clock tower as part of a publicity stunt to raise money for the Special Olympics. The gag netted more than $2,500. He told the Orange County Register: “I don’t particularly like heights, but I figured I could do this and face my fears because the Special Olympics athletes do this every day.” Fall 2011 | 27
