Shop With a Cop
The Prescott Police Department Shop With a Cop program was created in 1996 in cooperation with area law enforcement and local retailers and has enjoyed tremendous success. The program establishes goodwill between local law enforcement agencies and families experiencing hardships. This program provides selected children, referred by public and private organizations, the opportunity to shop with an officer for Christmas gifts.
The goals for Shop With a Cop are many. The program is intended to boost the children’s morale and build their self-esteem while allowing each participant to see officers in a non-intimidating setting. Likewise, the program fosters decision making practices and cost-effective purchasing. Most of all, it provides an opportunity for the participants to experience the gift of giving. Children not only shop for themselves, they also purchase gifts for their loved ones.
The Shop With a Cop program is completely funded through donations. Should you wish to learn more about this program or if you would like to make a donation, please call (928) 777-1900.
