CHICO, Calif. -- Chico Police officers traded in their badges for aprons for the "Tip-a-Cop" fundraiser at Chili's.
This year all the money will go towards Special Olympics Northern California.
The organization offers free year-round sports training and competition to more than 23,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities across the state.
"We strongly support the efforts of Special Olympics. Like I said, they do some wonderful things. That's some wonderful people that are involved in that organization, the participants are wonderful and we just love to support them," said Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien.
"Having the law enforcement from Chico support us, that's great," said Thea Beckett, a Special Olympics athlete.
Chico Police said they hope to raise more than $2,000 from this event. Chief O'Brien said his department wanted to thank Chili's for letting them host the event.
