What is Shop with a Cop?
Shop with a Cop fosters positive relationships between youth and local police officers. Young kids are selected to go holiday shopping at a local area store to purchase gifts for immediate family members. Each child is given a small amount of money, normally $50-$100 depending on the size of the child’s immediate family and donations received. Police officers escort the kids around the store and assist in selecting appropriate gifts for each family member. The children are told, and understand, the money is not for personal use and must only be spent on family members. This is the second year of the program in Elko New Market, which is modeled after a similar program by the Saint Paul Police Department.
Donations due by Tuesday December 18th, 2016.
