Shop With A Cop

| December 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Anne Arundel County Police Department has been asked by the Fort Smallwood, Severna Park and Annapolis Optimists Clubs to participate in the regional “Shop With A Cop” program.

The program, which is coordinated by the Optimist Clubs with corporate sponsorship from Wal-Mart and Outback Steak House, provides holiday shopping money to children so that they can shop for their families while being accompanied by a uniformed police officer.

The program this year is scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2011,at 8:30 a.m. when officers from the department will accompany children from their homes to arrive by 9:00 a.m. at the Wal-Mart located at 407 George Clauss Boulevard in Severn. Additionally, they will accompany the children to lunch at Outback Steak House in Glen Burnie.

The program has been a success for several years.
