‘Tip-A-Cop’ raises more than $6,000 for Special Olympics

The annual “Tip-A-Cop” fund-raiser collected $6,502 for Special Olympics Washington. Local law enforcement personnel donated their off-time to serve as waiters and waitresses Sept. 29 at the Red Robin restaurant in Silverdale, collecting donations from the public.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies served as waiters while explosive ordnance technician Deputy Scott Dickinson showed a display and demonstration with the Washington State Interagency Bomb Squad vehicle and remote controlled robot. Bremerton Police Officer Billy Renfro and his narcotics K-9, Lance, performed drug search exhibitions and Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Baker and his patrol K-9, Ryker, displayed their skills as well.

Sheriff Steve Boyer, Chief of Patrol Operations Gary Simpson, 14 sheriff’s deputies and police officers, 13 volunteers from the sheriff’s explorer cadets, the sheriff’s Citizens on Patrol (COPS) program and Special Olympians and Special Olympics Washington volunteers participated in “Tip-A-Cop.” KCSO and the Silverdale Red Robin restaurant are currently ranked in the top three, statewide, of all the law enforcement agencies and the 32 Red Robin restaurants that participated in the fund-raiser. KCSO was the No. 1 fund-raiser for last year’s “Tip-A-Cop” program.
