Entry Description

Vigo County—On Wednesday evening, April 9, from 4 to 10, Indiana State Police troopers from the Putnamville Post and officers from the Terre Haute Police Department participated in the “Tip-A-Cop” fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics of Indiana. The event was held at the Texas Roadhouse in Terre Haute.

During the evening, Texas Roadhouse staff, Special Olympic athletes, and law enforcement partnered to create an atmosphere of charity and fun. Officers and athletes provided fundraiser information to patrons of the restaurant and those patrons returned their generosity in the form of $2,746 in “Tips” for Special Olympics of Indiana.

The Indiana State Police, Terre Haute Police, and Special Olympics of Indiana extend their gratitude to those who generously donated money and to the Texas Roadhouse of Terre Haute for partnering in this important project.

This week, Indiana State Police hosted the same event at five other state police districts around Indiana.

Law enforcement questions can be directed to ISP Sergeant Joe Watts.
