The Ridgefield Police Department has raised thousands of dollars for Special Olympics Connecticut during two recent Tip A Cop events.
One was held at the end of May and officers took in just over $4,500 for Special Olympics. On Tuesday, officers raised more than $3,600 for the organization that provides year-round sports training and competitions for over 12,000 athletes (individuals with intellectual disabilities) and Unified Sports partners (individuals without intellectual disabilities who are the athletes’ teammates).
Bethel Police are holding a Tip-A-Cop event to support Connecticut Special Olympics. Bethel officers will be at Dunkin' Donuts on Grassy Plain Street today from 7am to 10am.
