Tip A Cop Logo 




Tip-A-Cop events will be held statewide at local restaurants. Local, state, college, university and correctional officers will work with the wait-staff to help serve meals, refill waterglasses and clear tables.  Patrons will have the opportunity to 'tip their cop above and beyond what they would give to their wait-person.  100% of the proceeds benefit thousands of Special Olympics Connecticut athletes. Please look for a Tip-A-Cop in your area.

Tip-A-Cop has been a favorite way for officers to raise money, and the public loves to have the officers wait on them hand and foot.  If you are interested in hosting a Tip-A-Cop, please contact Lisa Markham at 203-230-1201 x231 or

Cop-on-Top is a new type of fundraising effort for law enforcement. During a pre-determined weekend, officers are perched on rooftops of local businesses and stores for a certain amount of time to raise money for Special Olympics Connecticut.  Before the officer takes his position, he sets a financial goal, and if the goal is met before time is up, he or she can come down.  During the Cop-on-Top, the department running the fundraiser urges customers to donate to Special Olympics Connecticut and alleviate the officer from the rooftop.

All of the funds raised during the event will go towards the athletes of Special Olympics Connecticut.
