Shop With a Cop

The Shop With a Cop program joins children who are in need with local law enforcement officers, providing the children with money to shop for Christmas presents for their families and themselves. The program is funded completely from donations. Underprivileged children who participate in the program are chosen by law enforcement officers.

Children and officers meet the morning of Shop With a Cop where they travel together in a law enforcement vehicle, with lights and siren. First they enjoy a breakfast donated by McDonalds and then go to Wal-Mart to shop. Not only do the children get a chance to purchase Christmas presents that they otherwise would not be able to buy, but they also get a chance to build a positive relationship with law enforcement.

The program benefits children in Madison, Fremont, Jefferson, Clark and Teton Counties.

If you have questions regarding the program, please contact Lt. Colin Erickson or Sgt. Colette Davison at the Rexburg Police Department (208) 359-3008. For additional information you can refer to the Shop With a Cop blog at:

Donations to the program can be made at the Rexburg Police Department, 25 East Main Street, P.O. Box 280, Rexburg, Idaho 83440.
