Cape Girardeau Police Department employees are active in charity events throughout the year. Our charity of choice is the Missouri Special Olympics. Events such as "Tip A Cop", the annual "Law Enforcement Torch Run", and the annual "Polar Plunge" help us raise the needed funds for Special Olympics.

Tip A Cop:  Members of the police department serve food and drinks to restaurant patrons and accept "tips" for their service. One hundred present of these proceeds go directly to Special Olympics. Athletes from our area are also in attendance to assist and serve as greeters and wait staff. 

Torch Run:  Our officers are among 750 law enforcement officers state-wide who participate in this annual event. Officers lace up their running shoes and head up Kingshighway to raise funds and awareness for the Missouri Special Olympics.  

Polar Plunge:  Every February, several officer don costumes and swimwear to take a chilly dip into Lake Boutin. The Cape Girardeau Police Department raises over $1,500 for this event that goes directly to Special Olympics.
