July 09, 2018 - 9:41 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Police across Missouri will be "lending a hand" to the state's Special Olympics program this week.

The cops will be putting on aprons and waiting tables at select restaurants today through Saturday as part of the statewide "Tip a Cop" effort.

All donations they collect will go to support the more than 15,000 athletes participating in Missouri Special Olympics.

Officers from the Wentzville, St. Louis County, and Kirkwood Departments are on the schedule for tonight.
