Local officers from the Evansville Police Department, Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Department, along with Vanderburgh Confinement Officers will trade their badges for aprons to benefit local Special Olympics athletes during today's "Cops & Cowboys" fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse.

How can you help? It's easy! Simply stop by Texas Roadhouse on Eagle Crest Boulevard on Evansville's east side for lunch or dinner. Officers will be assisting the wait staff throughout the day, collecting tips that will be turned over to Special Olympics.
