OLATHE, KS – Olathe police officers will trade their handcuffs and badges for serving aprons during the annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser Saturday at Red Robin in Olathe.

The event benefits Special Olympics Kansas.

Officers will assist Red Robin employees 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the restaurant, 20155 W. 153rd St., by clearing and cleaning tables and refilling drinks. Officers will solicit “tips” for their efforts. All tips will be donated to Special Olympics Kansas.

Tip-A-Cop is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign. The Torch Run includes an international series of relay runs by thousands of enforcement officers worldwide to help raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics.
