The Carson City Sheriff’s Department found a new way to serve the community.

As a part of the Tip-A-Cop event, deputies traded in their guns and badges for menus and aprons and worked as servers at the Carson Street Applebee’s Thursday.

The officers helped serve restaurant guests from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 5 to 9 p.m. All proceeds from the event went to the Nevada Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, an organization in which law enforcement officers help raise awareness and money for the Special Olympics.

This event happened across Northern Nevada with law enforcement from Reno, Sparks, Carson City, and South Lake Tahoe participating in their local restaurants.
