WHO: Mayor Martin Walsh, Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross, members of the Boston Police Department, Boston EMS and the MBTA Police along with representatives from Target, Blauer and the Boston Police Athletic/Activities League.   

WHAT: Nothing quite captures the spirit of the holiday season better than the 6th Annual PAL Shop with a Cop, Heroes & Helpers. This year, as in years past, over 200 kids will go shopping accompanied by members of the Boston Police Department, Boston EMS and MBTA Police. Each child is furnished with a $50.00 gift card to be spent on gifts of their choosing. For officers who have participated in this event in year past, Shop with a Cop is a must attend/can’t miss event that highlights the season of giving. Said one officer, “Shop with a Cop is one of the best things we do. It feels so good to give something back and to show the kids how much we care about them.”
