Staff with the Office of Peace Officer Selection (OPOS), Background Investigation Unit (BIU) and Correctional Officer Recruitment Unit participated in the Tip-A-Cop fundraiser for Special Olympics.

The event raised $2,125 for Special Olympic Athletes in Folsom.

OPOS staff, including Capt. Robert O’Brien, participated as volunteer food servers along with Special Olympic athletes and Red Robin staff.

The event also doubled as a recruitment opportunity with an informational booth in front of the restaurant.
