Some local police officers were on-duty Saturday, but not patrolling the streets--they were waiting tables.
Fort Walton Beach police officers participated in the "Tip-a-Cop" fundraiser Saturday at the Fudpuckers in Destin. They tried their hand at serving lunch and dinner and worked for tips in an effort to raise money for the Special Olympics all while getting ready for their annual law enforcement torch run later this month.
"If you've ever attended a Special Olympics event, you can't help but be a supporter of those young folks" said Fort Walton Beach Police Chief Ted Litschauer.
Okaloosa County has been coined the birthplace of the Special Olympics movement here in Florida.
