County Executive Bruce Blakeman, Commissioner of Police Patrick Ryder and the Nassau County Police Department Foundation announce “Shop with A Cop”, an annual event that pairs 50 deserving children from the Westbury School District with police officers who will assist them with holiday shopping.
The Shop with A Cop program helps foster strong community relationships, as children from the Westbury area will shop with police officers from Community Affairs, PAL, Homeland Security, COPE, POP Units and our Super Hero’s in costume for holiday gifts for their families. The NCPD Foundation and Target are generously donating $150 per student for this shopping spree.
Fifty Westbury elementary students have been identified by their respective schools as meeting the criteria for this event. The children and a guidance counselor from each school will be transported in NCPD Department vehicles to the Target in Westbury by Police Officers from Community Affairs.
A welcoming celebration with the NCPD LEO the LION and Police Officers dressed as superheroes will kick off the event followed by refreshments and a shopping spree. Upon completion, the students will be returned to their schools by police officers.
