City of Vacaville, PAL, REACH, & Target will partner together to host the inaugural Shop with a Cop Event on Saturday, December 16th from 6-10am. The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between cops and kids. During the holiday season, youth from low income households, ages 7-18, will be selected to shop at Target to purchase gifts for members of their immediate family. Each child is given a small amount of spending money, depending on the size of the family and will be assigned to an officer, who will escort them around the store and help select appropriate gifts. After shopping, participants will eat breakfast, wrap gifts, and continue to get to know Vacaville police officers.

Application Deadline: Thursday, November 30th
