The event will run from noon until 8 p.m., with two shifts of coverage from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. and 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., at the Alamosa Chili’s Restaurant. “This is a great event for all of our law enforcement agencies and supports a great charity, continuing our legacy of giving back to the community we serve,” said Adams State Police Chief Paul Grohowski. “Basically we will work in conjunction with wait staff, filling water glasses, bringing meals to the tables. It gives our officers a great sense of pride and purpose within our community. It is actually a good deal of fun and great public relations for our university community too.”
