Checking out during Shop With a Cop.

More than 300 third graders joined local, state and federal law enforcement officers – including members of San Diego County Probation, Sheriff, District Attorney and Public Defender – for the 22nd Annual Shop With A Cop event Saturday. The children were paired with officers and treated to a special performance at SeaWorld as well as four passes to visit again with their family. Afterward, they caravanned over with lights flashing and sirens blaring to the Midway area Target store, where the children were given $150 to spend on gifts for the holidays.The annual event is sponsored by local law enforcement, SeaWorld, Target, STAR/PAL and the San Diego Crime Commission. This year’s event, hosted by the San Diego Police Department, provides children with a happier holiday season and encourages positive interaction with law enforcement.  Photos courtesy of San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and San Diego County Probation Department.
