SHOP WITH A COP

BridgeLink partners with the  Anoka County Sheriff’s Office for the Shop with a Cop event. Police officers help children in need from the community shop for Christmas for their families.

The children are picked up from their schools by uniformed staff members and given a ride to the store in a marked squad car. They each come ready with a list of things to buy for their family. The children then spend the next couple of hours shopping with Sheriff’s Office staff members and then wrap their gifts. They loaded all their wrapped gifts into squad cars and are given a ride home. Donations make this special event possible.
