The Conyers Police Department along, Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Department of Public Safety are partnering with the Conyers Wal-Mart for the 10th Annual Shop with a Cop. Through the initiative, law enforcement personnel accompany children from families experiencing financial hardships to the Conyers Wal-Mart to shop for Christmas gifts.

“The Conyers Wal-Mart has been an excellent community partner to assist the Conyers Police in spearheading this effort. Officers interact with children who may not have had a positive encounter with law enforcement until now. The partnership between the CPD and Wal-Mart makes sure that the children are afforded a more positive holiday experience,” said Chief Gene Wilson.

Since the program began, approximately 1,000 children have benefitted from Shop with a Cop. Shop with a Cop will take place on Saturday, Dec. 16, 8 a.m., at the Conyers Wal-Mart.  Families have been pre-selected for this year’s program.

Cash and check donations (made payable to City of Conyers or Shop with a Cop) and Wal-Mart gift cards are being accepted at the Conyers Police Department, which is located at 1194 Scott Street.

For more information on donating to the Shop with a Cop program, contact Sergeant Buck Vaughn 770 929-4233 or buck.vaughn@conyersga.gov.
