Law enforcement officers are taking over Texas Roadhouse Restaurants across the state.

No need to worry -- they won't be serving tickets -- just food!

Guns and badges were traded for aprons and serving trays Thursday.

The Texas Roadhouse in College Station opened its doors to police officers in support of Special Olympics Texas.

They’re called the Law Enforcement Torch Run officers, and they acted as celebrity waiters -- working hard for their money -- serving customers and collecting tips.

The tips will be donated to the children and adults who participate in Special Olympics Texas.

The Torch Run Program began in 1981. In 1984, the International Association of Chiefs of Police endorsed the Special Olympics as its official charity through the torch run program.

All monies raised during Tip-A-Cop at Texas Roadhouse will be donated to Special Olympics through the Law Enforcement Torch Run.

Texas Roadhouse is located at the 1600 block of University Drive.
