Over the last eight years, hundreds of BPD officers have participated in the ‘Shop with a Cop’ event.  This year’s festivities will start in Dorchester and include Target providing books and cards for the children, pizza served for dinner, and music and dancing with the children and family members.  Santa and Ms.Claus will also be making an appearance.

For the main event, approximately 300 kids will board MBTA buses and PAL Vans for a lights and siren escort to Target in South Bay where the kids and cops will shop, building trust and spearing holiday cheer.

The 300 children will be paired with the following:

  • Mayor Martin J. Walsh
  • Commissioner William B. Evans
  • Boston Police/Boston EMS
  • Transit Police
  • UMASS Boston Police
  • Boston University Police
  • MASS College of Art Police
  • ATF Agents
