Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Local cops are trading in their handcuffs for aprons in a major fundraiser to help Special Olympics.

This Saturday, local police officers will be serving food at the Virginia Center Common's Red-Robin in an effort to raise tips for Special Olympic athletes.

Plus, if you dine in this week, 50 cents for every soda and burger will be donated to the organization.
