LUBBOCK, Texas -

Have you ever had a police officer serve your table?

Today at Texas Roadhouse, local law enforcement officers along with Special Olympics athletes waited tables during a four-hour shift in the annual Tip a Cop Fundraiser.

All the tips raised are going to the Special Olympics of Texas.

"I do all the sports, there are all kinds of sports," said Taryn McKay, Special Olympics athlete. "It's lots of fun." 

"To see everything kind of come together you see our officers who raise money all year around and our athletes," said Special Olympics Area Director Ashley Pena. "It's pretty amazing." 

Sgt. Brenda Hasslle with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office helps out with the fundraiser from the law enforcement side.

"I try to get as much officers as we can to do events throughout the year," Hasslle said. 

All law enforcement agencies around the state are having a Tip a Cop fundraising event similar to the one today.
