Tuba City Law Enforcement officials held its annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser last week. They raised about $500, which will benefit the Arizona Special Olympics.

L ocal authorities went the extra mile during the Wednesday lunch rush at the Hogan Restaurant.

To raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Arizona, several correctional and police officers spent four hours serving drinks and bussing tables at “David Adam,” police jargon for their stomping ground.

Dressed in their crisp uniforms conveying power and authority, they acted as celebrity servers along with Hogan's wait staff and interacted with restaurant patrons in this year's Tip-A-Cop, an official Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign fundraising event.

“It's really great to see our officers help for a great cause,” said Hope MacDonald-Lonetree, the tribal relations advisor at the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Arizona. “It's for the children who are one of the greatest needs here on Navajo.” Tip-A-Cop generates substantial community benefaction and awareness for Special Olympics
