Police host annual “Shop with a Cop”

On December 5, the Escondido Police hosted their annual “Shop with a Cop” with modifications to comply with the COVID-19 restrictions. Typically, cops are paired up with kids from the community who then shop together at local stores for holiday gifts. The cops, who are “armed” with gift cards, provide kids with a positive experience with a police officer in addition to the joy of receiving a gift. In order to comply with recent health orders, officers did their shopping ahead of time this year and the kids came to the police department parking lot, where the officers passed out the gifts.
