2nd Annual “Shop with a Cop” being held on December 5th


shop 1The Racine Police Department is excited to announce that we are partnering with the Mt. Pleasant Police Department, and Racine Unified School District to hold our second annual Shop with a Cop event. The event is being held this Saturday December 5th at 9:00 a.m. at Walmart in Mt. Pleasant.

Our officers worked with Racine Unified elementary and middle schools to select 50 deserving,students to be rewarded with this opportunity. To be selected each child must have a good attitude, try hard in school and have exemplary behavior. The students were nominated by their teachers and school staff.

Each student will be paired with a uniformed officer and have money to spend on gifts for their family members and themselves. There will be breakfast and wrapping paper stations as well as festive activities. More importantly, we are modeling core values such as caring, giving, and fellowship; along with creating positive experiences that the children and officers will remember long after the Holidays pass.

We wish to thank all of our community sponsors for supporting this event. Donations from our?presenting sponsors SC Johnson and Meadowbrook Country Club along with Walmart, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Bendtsens Bakery, Parallel Employment, American Family Insurance-Dave Pucci, Shopko, Racine Dental, Paul Lindquist, John and Donna Brietchaft, Wells Brothers-Italian Restaurant, EconoPrint, USA Roller and Supply, and the Racine Police Athletic Association have made this event possible.
