Some Chattanooga police officers turned into waiters Wednesday for a good cause.

The department held their second "Tip a Cop" fundraiser to help raise money for the Special Olympics.

Officers served as celebrity waiters along with some of the athletes at Chuey's on Gunbarrel Road.

Organizers say the athletes and officers have fun, and enjoy working with each other.

"They are thrilled to work along the police department," says Area 4 Director Beth Webb. "They love getting to pretend to be a cop for today. They think it's great to get to have that relationship."

"It's to show our understanding respect and appreciation for those athletes," says Police Chief David Roddy. "Everything they do to get ready for the games is inspirational for us."

All the tips the officers received went straight to the Special Olympics.

Chief Roddy told us a portion of the sales also went to the organization.
