Mother Nature only postponed “Shop With a Cop.” This Saturday, December 21 at 7:30 a.m., 110 officers and as many children will leave precincts from around Baltimore County to participate in the 12th Annual “Shop With a Cop” event.

Officers and children will drive to the Walmart store in Cockeysville. Once there, the children and their police officer “buddies” will do some holiday shopping with money provided by the Optimist Clubs in Baltimore County. Each child gets $100 to spend as they choose. Typically, however, most kids buy presents for friends and family.

After shopping, the officers and children will drive to the Outback restaurant in the Hunt Valley Towne Centre for breakfast. The breakfast is provided by Outback.

Largest Event

Baltimore County’s “Shop With a Cop” was started by Officer Michael Schmitz, Precinct 11/Essex, in 2001 and is the largest “Shop With a Cop” event in the state. This is a special Baltimore County Police Department tradition.

The Department looks forward each year to doing its part to give families a happy holiday. It also gives kids a chance to get to know their local police officers.

Update: Due to the  forecast of bad weather on Saturday, December 14, the Baltimore County Police Department postponed its Shop with a Cop event to Saturday, December 21. Chief James W. Johnson stated, "I know that many of the kids will be disappointed along with the many volunteers from the community and our officers who have been participating for numerous years. However, we had to make the decision that best protects our most precious resource, our children."
