Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop Event April 26

They'll be exchanging their citation books for meal order pads, and instead of giving orders they'll be taking them. And, yes, police protect and serve, but now they'll also be serving. Yes, it's Tip-a-Cop time again in San Francisco! Continuing its yearly participation in Special Olympics, San Francisco police officers will become waiters for a day, donating their tips to Special Olympics. This year, the event will be held on Thursday, April 26, at Scoma's restaurant, on Pier 47 on Fisherman's Wharf, from 11:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M.

Proceeds from Tip-a-Cop help provide year-round sports training and competition to children and adults with developmental disabilities at no cost to their families.

Tip-a-Cop and the annual multi-law enforcement agency Special Olympics Torch Run reflect the San Francisco Police Department's ongoing commitment to helping the Special Olympics of Northern California.
