"Cops on Top"

“Cops on Top”

 

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is proud to be a part of the annual Law Enforcement Special Olympics “Cops on Top” fundraiser for Special Olympics. Held at a local Wal-Mart, law enforcement officers and volunteers from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office participate in a weekend long event selling t-shirts and taking donations for Special Olympics. At the 2015 “Cops on Top” event, we were able to raise over $15,000 in three days from supporters within our community. This is the first Special Olympics fundraiser of the year that we conduct and it leads us into the Torch Run that is usually held in May. Special Olympics personnel from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office starts selling the annual Torch Run t-shirts as early as March and inquires can be made by contacting us by email or telephone. This year&rsqu o;s “Cops on Top” event will take place at Wal-Mart at 8580 Highway 72 from April 22-24, 2016.

 

"Tip a Cop" at Red Robin

“Tip a Cop” at Red Robin

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is honored to participate in the annual “Tip a Cop” fundraiser that is sponsored by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and the Alabama Law Enforcement Special Olympics. Held annually, law enforcement officers and volunteers from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office assemble at both Red Robin locations within Madison County to raise money for Special Olympics. Working alongside Red Robin personnel, deputies deliver and refill non-alcoholic drinks for customers and then provide them with a form to “Tip a Cop”. All donations are separate from the tips to Red Robin personnel and go directly to Special Olympics. We also sell the annual Torch Run t-shirts during this fundraiser. Last year we were able to raise over $3600! This event is usually held in October and this year’s dates will be announced closer to time.
