Join local law enforcement on Sept. 27 for an evening at Paso Robles Event Center

ATASCADERO — Tip-A-Cop will take place on Sept. 27, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Paso Robles Event Center. Officers from the Atascadero Police Department will be participating in this event that supports our local Special Olympics athletes to be able to compete in various athletic events throughout San Luis Obispo County.   

Take the evening off from cooking and join our local law enforcement officers as they trade in their badges for aprons to spend an evening serving you and raising money for Special Olympics in San Luis Obispo County. Atascadero Police officers will be serving at the Wednesday, Sept. 27, Tip-A-Cop dinner at the Paso Robles Event Center with two seating times, 5:30 and 7 p.m. 

“We look forward to seeing our Atascadero community come out and support this event and we promise it to be a fun experience,” said Interim Police Chief Joe Allen, “plus it supports a great cause.”


For eight seats at the Chief’s Table, it is $500, or a table of eight at the Officers Table for $250 or purchase individual seats for $35. All meals include Tri-tip and chicken with beans, bread, salad and drinks all served by local law enforcement officers. Reservations are required. More information can be found at

All of the proceeds raised at the dinners will benefit local Special Olympics athletes and help fund outreach efforts to get San Luis Obispo County athletes and coaches back into the game after the pandemic.

Any community member or group is asked to contact Allen at (805) 470-3238, and he can deliver your tickets personally. Reserve your table now.
