Photos of the Week: Tip a Cop

Lawton Police Department officers; including I.U.P.A. Local Lawton Police Officers Assn., #24 Members; waited tables at Texas Roadhouse to raise money for Special Olympics. It was a wonderful event, full of smiles, good food and drinks, and great company.

The department shared the below photos on social media, “From serving drinks, rolls, and taking food orders, the Lawton Police Department would like to thank everyone who stopped by Texas Roadhouse and tipped us to be your server! Because of your donations, we were able to raise just over $2,000 for Special Olympics Oklahoma! Together we can make a difference.”

Special Olympics purpose, per their website, “Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. We are helping to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place—one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.”

Special Olympics mission is, “The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.” You can learn more at their website.

Each week, the I.U.P.A. Briefing Room features a photo that exemplifies the valuable part of the community that our Law Enforcement Officers all across the U.S. are and their positive impact as well as their dedication, service, and sacrifice.
