The Roseville Police Department helped spread a little cheer this year to several Roseville families. Police officers helped youngsters with holiday shopping through the Police Department Shop with a Cop program.
Officers took the kids, who because of family circumstances may not have been able to buy gifts, shopping for their families. When the kids returned to City Hall, they were joined by other Police Department staff and volunteers to wrap presents and enjoy pizza and holiday treats.
This annual event is funded, in part, through donations from Target Corporation, Roseville Police Foundation, and private gifts. Since its start in 2005, Shop with a Cop has helped more than 130 children and their families in Roseville.
