Shop With A Cop A Much Anticipated Annual Event
By Kristin Forbis, Dec 6, 2021
A favorite annual event is approaching for local law enforcement. “Law Enforcement as a whole looks forward every year to Shop With A Cop,” shares Vernal Assistant Police Chief Keith Campbell. “It is a great opportunity for our profession to help others. Those participating look forward to the event, and often times they likely have as much fun or more than those receiving gifts.” Shop With a Cop first came to Utah in 1990 as a program through K-Mart. In 2003, K-Mart discontinued the event after corporate reorganization and the Salt Lake Police Department took the steps to see it continue. The goodwill fostered between kids and officers inspired agencies throughout Utah to participate and hold their own Shop With a Cop events.
