The San Diego County Sheriff's Department was proud to host this year's Shop With A Cop event.
On Saturday, December 3rd, deputies, officers and agents from nearly three-dozen law enforcement agencies turned into Santa's Helpers and took more than 300 local children on a shopping spree.
Before the shopping started, children got to know their law enforcement partners during breakfast at SeaWorld. To make the day even more special, SeaWorld treated the kids to a fun holiday animal show.
The kids were then transported to the Target store in the Midway District with a police escort, complete with lights and sirens. Every child received a $150 gift card which they used to buy toys, clothes and other goodies at Target. Santa and Mrs. Claus posed for photos while their elves provided free gift wrapping. Children also explored displays and patrol vehicles from law enforcement agencies.
We'd like to thank everyone who made this year's Shop With A Cop a great success!
