Benson Shop With A Cop Program
where life long memories are made
Applications are in and children are being selected!! Two weeks till the shopping begins and SANTA will be showing up for pictures!!
Children ages 6 to 12 are hand selected to go shopping at Walmart with "their" officer and spend $125.00!
Our mission is to help under privileged children from our community come together with local Law Enforcement in an inclusive, non-threatening environment that will encourage open and honest communication with Law Enforcement Officers to remove any fear the youths may have when interacting with officers, and to help educate them regarding the role that the officers play in our community.
Our purpose is to provide an opportunity for youth who have encountered hardship in our community to experience a positive relationship with members of law enforcement while shopping for themselves and family members in a safe and secure environment.
EXCITING DAY AHEAD
With the rising sun each officer is paired with a child for a day of mentoring and the possibility of fulfilling his or her Christmas wishes
