TIP A COP EVENT A BIG SUCCESS
The Burleson Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association hosted a fundraiser Monday night at Grumps in Old Town Burleson that raised more than $2,600.
The association put Burleson Police officers to work waiting on tables with the tips going to the BCPAA.
“The event was a great success and we appreciate the support for our BCPAAA as well as our officers,” Burleson Police Chief Billy Cordell said. “Grumps is a great partner for this event and we appreciate them hosting the fundraiser. Of course, we appreciate everyone that came out. Our citizens are the best and we always appreciate their support.”
The fundraiser benefits the BCPAA. The association uses the money to purchase equipment for officers and donate monety the Explorer Program. They also purchase meals for officers during holidays and do other things to let the officers know they are appreciated, Chief Cordell said.
