RPD Accepting Donations for 17th Annual Shop with a Cop

RPD Accepting Donations for Shop with a Cop Program

On December 7, the Roseville Police Department will host its annual Shop with a Cop program.

This year marks the 17th consecutive year that the department has paired officers up with children from the community to go on a shopping spree and spend some time getting to know each other.  

“Our department is very fortunate to have the support of our community for this wonderful program,” says Roseville Police Chief Erika Scheider. “Shop with a Cop is a great opportunity for our officers to build positive relationships with the younger members of our community and their families.”

How it works

After shopping together, the officers and their new partners return to the Roseville Skating Center to wrap the presents and finish the evening with a pizza party and lots of treats.  

“It’s fun to see their comfort level with our officers increase as the night progresses,” adds Chief Scheider. “Trust is an important component in public safety and events like this help to make our community stronger.”  

The Shop with a Cop program is made possible through financial and in-kind donations from the community. Donations for Shop with a Cop can be dropped off or mailed to the Roseville Police Department.
