Why are Cops Waiting on Tables? Cops and Special Olympics athletes make a great team!  Officers wait on tables in hopes of earning “tips” to support the SOKS athletes. At the same time officers create awareness of the unique relationship between Law Enforcement and SOKS.  All “tips” received are donated to SOKS.

Tip a Cops are over for 2017.
Check back frequently to find great places to eat for a great cause.


Due to nature of our events, registrations fees for no-shows or late cancellations are non-eligible for refund.  If you have earned an incentive for the event please contact us and we will make every effort to get it to you.  Thank you for your understanding and support of Special Olympics.
