CLARE, Mich., July 7 (UPI) -- Members of a Michigan police department, apparently unafraid of jokes at their expense, banded together to purchase their favorite doughnut shop.

The Clare Police Department, which has nine full-time officers, purchased the Clare City Bakery and changed the name to Cops & Doughnuts after discovering the previous owners were planning to close down the 113-year-old shop, WNEM-TV, Saginaw, Mich., reported Tuesday.

The officers said they are volunteering their time with the bakery and will not be paid for their services. They said the shop will be staffed by high school and college students.

Cops & Doughnuts apparel, including a T-shirt stating, "You Have The Right To Remain Glazed," can be purchased from the store's Web site, www.copsdoughnuts.com.
