December 2017 – Shop With A Cop
The first three Saturdays in December saw an abundance of smiles as eleven annual “Shop With A Cop” events were held in communities across Utah. The Utah Police Civilian Association is honored to have been able to help officers across thirteen counties as they brought these smiles to the faces of close to 1,400 children this year. These events are a culmination of efforts by officers, volunteers, and donors who work all year to make these events happen for children who are considered disadvantaged or at-risk. To all of these wonderful people, we would like to say “Thank You.”
The following photo’s are from some of the events.

August 9, 2017 – “Tools for Schools”
Dave and Deb, the morning team from radio station Z-104.3, lived in a school bus for three whole days 24/7 while they asked their listeners to fill three buses with school supplies for kids in need. These supplies, and the money raised, went to seven school districts along the Wasatch Front. The Utah Police Civilian Association is proud that we were able to fill some of those needs with a load of supplies and a healthy donation.
Summer Event 2017
In June the Garfield County Sheriff Department, in conjunction with the annual “Balloon Festival, met and provided over 1,500 kids with safety information, t-shirts, and other surprises. This is an annual event for the officers and we were proud to have been invited to take part. This event falls right into our goal of bringing “Cops, Kids and Community” together in positive ways. Please check out these photo’s.
“Shop With A Cop” 2016
This year the Utah Police Civilian Association was able to help with 10 different events in 10 different counties across the state. We have chosen to highlight the “Shop With A Cop” event in Duchesne County, Utah. Roosevelt P.D. hosted the event with the Duchesne Co. Sheriff Dept., Highway Patrol, Roosevelt Fire and EMS, Department of Interior officers, and the Boy Scouts on-board to help. Judging from the smiles on these faces, this was a very successful event. The local McDonald’s provided breakfast for everyone. Kids and cops shopped till they dropped, getting the warm clothes they needed and the many things they wanted to make Christmas special. Please enjoy the photo’s from this special event.
