In Redding, local law enforcement officers have been hard at work Saturday for the annual tip a cop fundraiser.

Waiters at Red Robins may look a little more official, Saturday.

Officers have been hustling and busting tables for their annual fundraiser tip a cop.

“We're out here raising funds to help support Special Olympics throughout the year. This is our only event we do throughout the year," said Jason Morton, CHP Public Information Officer.

During this annual event, officers serve tables at red robins and hand out these envelopes for customers to donate.

“Our turnout this year since 11 a.m., has been a lot better than last year. I’ve had people come in just to donate and not even sit down to eat,” Morton said.

All these donations mean good for the Special Olympics and is used as a little competition between the officers up and down the state.

“Last year we were number three in the state for Redding which was awesome and this year we are hoping to be number one,” Morton said.
