Shop With a Cop

Thank you, to all who helped make this year’s Shop with a Cop event a huge success. With grateful hearts, we thank the community for the generous contributions that make this event happen each year.  This year, we were able to bring a little extra holiday magic to 17 kids from 9 families. We were able to video some of the evening with hopes of sharing the event with our community. Watch the video above, or visit our YouTube channel at to see more videos about your city.

Holiday Shopping
The Roseville Police Department helped spread a little cheer this year to several Roseville families. Police officers helped 17 youngsters with holiday shopping through the Police Department Shop with a Cop program. Officers took the kids, who because of family circumstances may not have been able to buy gifts, shopping for their families. When the kids returned to City Hall, they were joined by other Police Department staff and volunteers to wrap presents and enjoy pizza and holiday treats.

Selecting Families
Roseville Police partnered with Tubman, a community organization that provides services for families in crisis, to select families. Target, Papa John’s, Michaels Stores, Cub Foods and Roseville Bakery and community members, donated goods and funds to make this holiday event happen. The Roseville Police Department and Tubman thank all for their generous support.

Helping Those in Greatest Need

“Even though financial times are tight for many, the community stepped forward to help those in greatest need,” said Sarah Mahmud, Roseville Community Relations Coordinator. “It's our chance to build positive relationships with the children and their families and to bring them a little holiday cheer during difficult times. Thanks to the generosity of businesses and community members, each child received money to shop at Target, materials to wrap gifts, and a tasty dinner,” said Mahmud.

Target Corporation also donated gift cards to the families to help with this year's holiday meals.

Since its inception in 2005, Shop with a Cop has helped more than 90 children in Roseville.
