News Release
2018 Shop with a Cop event to be held on Saturday (Photo) - 12/05/18

On Saturday, December 8, 2018, uniformed officers and support staff from local law enforcement agencies will be volunteering their time at the Roseburg Walmart store to help provide a brighter Christmas for foster children in Douglas County.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Roseburg Police Department, Sutherlin Police Department, Winston Police Department, Myrtle Creek Police Department, Oregon State Police, and Douglas County Parole and Probation will be participating in the annual "Shop with a Cop" holiday event. The event will be held at the Roseburg Walmart from 8:15 – 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Thirty-one children have been selected and will be paired up with a police officer and given money to buy Christmas gifts for their families. The officers help the children pick out gifts for their family members and then help wrap them. Before leaving, each child is given their own gift and a stocking filled with goodies from Santa.

The purpose of this event is to help make the holiday season brighter for these children and to give them the opportunity to interact with law enforcement in a positive setting.

Shop with a Cop is fully funded through donations. We would like to thank Christmas for Kids of Douglas County for their generous donation of $2,100 to make this event possible. We would also like to thank the Roseburg Walmart store for hosting and to our many volunteer elves.   

All members of the media are invited to attend.
