[ARCHIVED] Shop With A Cop 2019

On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Lombard Police Department and the Lombard Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association will host its 21st annual Shop with a Cop event.

The purpose of Shop with a Cop is to help bring Christmas gifts and joy to less fortunate children and their families who live in the community, while fostering positive relationships with law enforcement.

Lombard police officers pick up the children from their homes and bring them to Lombard Village Hall, where they are escorted in a convoy of squad cars to go Christmas shopping at the Yorktown Target store.

The children go shopping for gifts for their parents and family, with help from Lombard police officers. All the shoppers then return to village hall where they will be greeted by Thor the Lombard police canine, as well as Santa Claus. Volunteers with the Lombard Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association help wrap the gifts and host a lunch.

At the end of the event, the children are driven home in squad cars filled with gifts, trays of cookies and gift baskets. This event is made possible by fundraising efforts of the Lombard Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, Lombard FOP #270, and donations from local businesses and individuals.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to this year's Shop With A Cop, can do so by dropping the donation off at the Lombard Police station, or mailing it to the Lombard Police Department at 235 E. Wilson Ave, Lombard, IL, 60148; to the attention of Sgt. Sherie Eakins.
