Alumni from Lake Havasu City Police Departments Citizens Academy will be hosting “Shop With A Cop” this Saturday morning. Pre-selected grade school students from each school will be teamed up with an officer, receive a tour of their patrol car before taking a ride to K-Mart to do shopping for their family members. The shopping sprees are sponsored by the Alumni through generous donations made by community members earmarked for this event, and through Alumni fundraising events.
Shortly after 9 AM you will see a caravan of several police cars will be traveling from the front of the Police Station towards K-Mart and then around 11 AM making their round-trip back, where they will wrap their gifts with the officer at the station. Please do not be alarmed by the large number of patrol units traveling together, or parked outside of K-Mart Saturday Morning.
Shop With A Cop builds up the relationship of children in our community and the outlook they will have towards Police Officers in the years to come.
