Shop with a Cop

On December 16, 2017 the Newville Police Department held a “Shop with a Cop” event for disadvantaged children in the community. The police department worked with the Big Spring School District to identify children in the community needing a little special attention for the holiday.

On Dec 16th the Newville PD and 13 officers from neighboring jurisdictions gathered at the Shippensburg Walmart with 16 local children. The officers shopped with each child and helped them pick out gifts for themselves and other family members. The presents were then wrapped by volunteers for Christmas morning. Families were also given gift certificates to local businesses.
