When the Calumet City Police Department contacted Alta Equipment for help with their 16th annual Dunkin’ Donuts Cop on a Rooftop event, Alta was happy to provide their support. Jim Lynch, Branch Manager for Alta Equipment in Calumet City, worked with the police department to coordinate the donation of a scissor lift rental that allowed Officer Bogdanovich and Officer Chaves to make it safely to the top of the Dunkin’ Donuts Rooftop in River Oaks. This is the second year in a row Alta has donated an equipment rental in support of the Cop on a Rooftop event.
