Schaumburg police support Special Olympics with ‘Cop in the Lot’

With most in-person fundraisers for Special Olympics Illinois and its Law Enforcement Torch Run canceled by the pandemic this year, agencies like the Schaumburg Police Department are innovating new and COVID-appropriate ways for people to donate.

One of them is the “Cop in the Lot” event going on from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, in the parking lot of the department’s headquarters, 1000 W. Schaumburg Road.



“Cop in the Lot” is designed to be a family-friendly, drive-through event featuring cars on display and appearances by costumed characters such as Judy Hopps from the Disney film “Zootopia” and McGruff the Crime Dog.

Attendees will remain in their cars as they drive through and are required to wear face coverings during their visit.

Police department staff and volunteers also will be adhering to social distancing protocols as they accept cash donations from attendees.

The proposals, made by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), would apply through the same sales channel.

For example, if the customer bought the policy online, they would be charged the same price as a new customer buying online.

Okay so, you run a mobile car washing business and you want to increase your revenue generation by adding some car dealership lot washing contracts. That makes sense because the car dealerships have lots of cars, and they must be cleaned to sell; no one wants to buy a dirty car right? Sure, so your next question is what price point can you charge and still make money. Not long ago, I was asked about this by an already successful car washing entrepreneur;

“I noticed on one of your posts [articles] you suggested $.85 for twice a week. Wow, can it be done for that without have the contract for detailing as well?”

He was referring of course to the synergy gained by detailing for auto dealerships and also maintaining the washing contracts as a bundled service, which is the favored strategy for mobile auto detailers and mobile car washing … Read More
