Shop With A Cop

The Sacramento Police Department has teamed up with the Target Corporation to bring holiday joy and cheer to ten children and their families.

On Saturday, December 3, 2011, at 8 a.m., officers will accompany 10, preselected children on a shopping spree at the Target Store located at Calvine Road and Bruceville Road.  Each child will be accompanied by an officer and a Target representative.  Each child will receive $220 to purchase gifts for themselves or others. The children and their families were selected by both local elementary school representatives and officers.

The Sacramento Police Department would like to thank the Target Corporation for their continued support. This is another great example of the partnership between Target, the Sacramento Police Department, and the children and their families within our community.

Target partners with law enforcement and criminal justice organizations throughout the nation through their "Target and Blue" program to build stronger, safer communities.
