On Saturday December 10th, 2016 approximately 91 children from Yavapai County will be participating in the 19th annual Shop with a Cop event. This event, coordinated yearly by the Prescott Police Department is funded entirely by donations and supported by volunteers throughout the community. This year Officers from eleven (11) various Law Enforcement agencies will be pairing with children to shop for gifts and essentials that will help make Christmas a little happier.
This year’s event will begin at Yavapai College on Sheldon Street. Children and their Officers will leave Yavapai College in a lights and siren procession and travel on Sheldon Street to State Route 69, then onto Glassford Hill Road to the Wal-Mart Store. Children will shop; enjoy breakfast and a special visit from Santa Clause before returning to meet their families at Yavapai College.
Every year, this event brightens the spirits of everyone who participates and all who witness the happiness of each child. The Prescott Police Department is grateful for the support of our community whose generous donations make this event possible each year. Those who wish to donate may contact Lead Police Officer David Fuller at (928)777-1915.
