BPD in the Community: 10th Annual Shop with a Cop Event Held at Target in South Bay

BPD in the Community: On Monday December 10, 2018, members of the Boston Police Department enjoyed participating in the 10th Annual “Shop with a Cop: Heroes & Helpers Holiday Celebration” held at the South Bay Target Store in Dorchester. Officers from districts across the city along with volunteers from several outside police and first-responder agencies paired up with over three hundred deserving children from every neighborhood in Boston to pick out a special holiday gift. The event was hosted by Mayor Walsh and Commissioner Gross and generously funded by the Boston Police Activities/Athletics League (PAL), Target and several other charitable organizations. Our officers enjoyed sharing their time while bringing a little holiday magic to these grateful children and their families during this season of giving.
