Police officers all over Texas waited tables at Texas Roadhouse for the annual Tip-A-Cop event on Thursday.

The Temple Police Department had over 20 off-duty officers, SWAT officers and constables waiting tables for four hours.  

Temple police have been participating in the event for over nine years. 

“It’s amazing. I get to see this and then I get to go to Arlington and see the end result of where the money goes,” Officer Michael Keating said.

Last year, Temple police raised $3,500. This year they've raised over $3,100. 

All of the money raised during the annual event will go to Special Olympics Texas.
