What is Shop with a Cop?
Shop with a Cop is a program created by the Conyers Police Department, in collaboration with the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office and the Georgia Department of Public Safety, in which law enforcement personnel accompany children from families experiencing financial hardships to the Conyers Wal-Mart to shop for Christmas gifts.
Since the program began in 2007, approximately 1,200 children have benefitted from Shop with a Cop.
Is my child eligible to participate?
Applications for children to participate in Shop with a Cop will be made available in November 2020. Applicants will undergo a screening process and will be contacted if accepted into this year's program. All children must be in grades kindergarten through fifth grade and be enrolled in Rockdale County Public Schools.
When is Shop with a Cop?
Shop with a Cop typically takes place the third Saturday in December at the Conyers Wal-Mart.
