Shop with a Cop Application

The Auburn Police Department welcomes the opportunity to work with today's youth, particularly underprivileged children who may not have the same opportunities as others their age. Shop with a Cop is one of the ways we reach out to these children and their families.

Through Shop with a Cop, children in need are able to purchase gifts for Christmas and needed items for themselves (such as coats, hats, gloves, boots or other winter items).

The Auburn Police Departments strives to make the event an engaging and exciting one. An Auburn Police Department representative picks up children and takes them to Wal-Mart to shop. Afterward, children are treated to a meal at a local restaurant. At the end of the excursion, children are returned safely to their home.

The deadline for applications is November 30, 2017.

You can also download and print off the Shop with a Cop form and return it to the address on the form.

  • Any child age 15 and under on the shopping day is eligible.
