Shop with a Conyers Cop 2017

Post Date:11/29/2017 8:30 AM

The Conyers Police Department is partnering with the Conyers Wal-Mart to help make this Christmas brighter for local children.

The Conyers Police Department along with Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Department of Public Safety are participating in the 10th Annual Shop with a Cop in which law enforcement personnel accompany children from families experiencing financial hardships to the Conyers Wal-Mart to shop for Christmas gifts. 

“The Conyers Wal-Mart has been an excellent community partner to assist the Conyers Police in spearheading this effort. Officers interact with children who may not have had a positive encounter with law enforcement until now. The partnership between the CPD and Wal-Mart makes sure that the children are afforded a more positive holiday experience,” said Chief Gene Wilson.

Since the program began, approximately 1,000 children have benefitted from Shop with a Cop. Shop with a Cop will take place at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 16 at the Conyers Wal-Mart.  Families have been pre-selected for this year’s program.

Cash and check donations (made payable to City of Conyers or Shop with a Cop) and Wal-Mart gift cards are being accepted at the Conyers Police Department located at 1194 Scott Street.  For more information on donating to the Shop with a Cop program, contact Sergeant Buck Vaughn 770 929-4233 or buck.vaughn@conyersga.gov.
