Sheriff of San Mateo Don Horsley pushing caffeine into Paul Saffo

Sergeant Vicki O’Brian came by the other day and asked if I would like to have Buck’s be part of the Tip-A-Cop program. This consists of the police officers from many different cities and the sheriffs of San Mateo County coming into a restaurant and helping serve the customers as actual staff and if they do a good job you leave a tip which goes to the Special Olympics.

So we did or best to shelve (quite unsuccessfully) donut, handcuff and bribe jokes. Sheriff Don Horsley, Undersherrif Gregg Monks and about a dozen other men and women from the Department came and gave us a hand. with this great event on Tuesday March 3rd. In about an hour we had squeezed about $700.00 from the customers lucky enough to have taken part.
