Los Angeles: The third annual "Tip a Cop" event is slated to raise $6,000.00 for the Jeopardy "Balancing the Odds" Program in Foothill and Van Nuys Area of the Los Angeles Police Department's Operations-Valley Bureau. Police officers, detectives and Command Staff volunteers will assist the regular servers at the Acapulco Restaurant and Cantina in Sun Valley and Lulu's Café in Van Nuys. Restaurant patrons will pay their bill, tip their server and an additional donation to "tip a cop".

At 6:00 p.m., Captain Kris Pitcher and other members of the command staff of Foothill Area will work as "celebrity servers" at the Acapulco Restaurant and Cantina.

Jeopardy "Balancing the Odds" Program is a front-end gang intervention unit of the Los Angeles Police Department and supported by the Jeopardy Foundation. A multi-disciplinary approach is designed to equip families with the skills necessary to avoid the lure of gangs and to make successful and productive choices. Program strategies include recreational activities in sports and the arts; an in-house family counseling center; literacy training and enrichment activities.

For further information contact Lieutenant Gary Nanson, Operations Valley Bureau at 818-756-7777 or Ms. Vicki Boss, Jeopardy Foundation at 818-837-1167.
