P1020911Why 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 athletes of Special Olympics Kansas. At the same time officers create awareness of the unique relationship between Law Enforcementand SOKS.  All “tips” received are donated to SOKS. Participating Restuarants Have Included: Bobby D’s in Emporia Bubba’s Chillis Culvers Famous Dave’s Johnny’s Johnny’s BBQ in Mission Olpe Chicken House Outback Steakhouse Red Robin Sombreros Check out your favorite eatery and see if they will join the fun!  It is a great way to build community relations.
