AUBURN – As part of a yearly campaign to raise money for the Special Olympics, police officers from three area departments will tote trays, take orders and clean tables between 5:30 and 9 p.m at Applebee’s Friday night.

Lewiston, Auburn and Sabattus cops from the street beat all the way up to the highest ranks will be waiting on customers at the Center Street restaurant.

While making their rounds, the officers will invite customers to provide “tips” to be handed over to the Special Olympics.

The Special Olympics games kick off in June, starting with a torch run involving police officers from all over the state.

The athletic program provides year-round sports training and athletic competition to more than a million people with mental retardation in over 150 countries.
