Chief Brian A Kyes recognized five Chelsea officers who volunteered to participate in the “Tip-A-Cop” event held at the Applebee’s Restaurant on Route 1 in Saugus on September 14, 2017. This is an annual event which is held to raise awareness and money for the Special Olympics. During the event Police Officers act as ambassadors of the Department and work as “celebrity waiters” for an evening of great food and fun to benefit local Special Olympic athletes. Customers are encouraged to dine and donate extra tips in support of the athletes. The athletes, event organizers, and Applebee’s staff were highly impressed and appreciative of the officer’s efforts. In 2016 participants raised over $1000. This year participants raised over $1400!
The following officers participated; Officer Tom Broman, Officer Ryan Ostler, Officer Nicole McLaughlin and Officer Long Lam
