A few deputies from the Grand Forks Sheriff's Department are trying their hand in the food service industry.

A few deputies from the Grand Forks Sheriff's Department are trying their hand in the food service industry.

It is part of the annual tip a cop. These deputies are shadowing servers at Applebee's on Columbia to raise money for the special olympics.

They help servers carry out food, bus tables and greet customers.

After their meals, the customers are encouraged to give them some cash for their hard work.

The Grand Forks Police Department did it on Tuesday, and now the Sheriff's Department hope to raise some funds for a good cause.

"I'm glad people are coming out. I'm glad people care about special olympics, because it's a very worthwhile cause," Major Bob Rost of the Grand Forks Sheriff's Department said.

Rost, a candidate for sheriff, tried his hand playing doorman and greeting incoming customers.

The Sheriff's department took in almost $1200 for the charity, while the Police Department's take was a little over $400.
