Shop With a Cop

The "Shop With A Cop" Program pairs a young person with an officer twice a year for a shopping excursion at a local retailer. Boise Police Officers, the Boise Police Association, and the Boise Police Victim Witness unit help fund the program and often times kids choose to purchase items to assist their parents and family. The back to school Shop with a Cop event allows underprivileged children a chance to obtain school supplies and the holiday event is centered around children involved with the Victim Witness Unit. Both events give kids a chance to interact with police in a positive environment. To make a donation to the Boise Police Association for Shop with a Cop, please fill out the form below.
