Quakertown Borough Police Department

In Partnership with Surrounding Law Enforcement Agencies

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, Quakertown Borough Police Officer Robert Lee and Officers from surrounding Police Departments are preparing for the 9th Annual SHOP WITH A COP event on December 12.  

SHOP WITH A COP is a national program pairing police officers with children to afford them a better Christmas.  The program allows children to view police officers in a different atmosphere to promote positive relationships.  This program is geared toward Quakertown School District children at the elementary levels. The children are faced with life challenges such as a parent losing a job, homelessness, military deployment, economic shortcomings, and other hardships. 

SHOP WITH A COP is funded through the generous donations of our own community, from private sponsors to local businesses. Volunteers from the community help with gift wrapping, hosting, and registration.  Each child is allotted a monetary gift card to purchase gifts for themselves and family members, allowing for a more enjoyable holiday. All participating police officers volunteer their own time to support the program.

SHOP WITH A COP started in December 2011 with 14 children and increased to 120 children in 2018, with each child receiving a $150 Walmart gift card. 

SHOP WITH A COP was developed to help make the holidays brighter for disadvantaged families in the Quakertown School District.  But we cannot do it without your support!  Please contact Julie Bender at 215.536.5001 x134 or with any questions.
