Shop with a Cop 2018

December 8, 2018 - Lancaster, PA -  Officers Ken Wolfe, Claud Neer and Sgt. Steve Detz joined officers from all over Lancaster County in this year’s Shop with a Cop program hosted by Trinity Lutheran Church on South Duke Street in Lancaster.  50 Officers were matched up with 75 children from the Mix at Arbor Place and La Academia Partnership Charter School.   The Officers, children and their families spend the day socializing, breaking down barriers, building community and of course shopping.  Once all the officers and children are matched up, they are all taken by bus to the Walmart on Lincoln Highway where each child is given a $100 gift card to go shopping.  The Officers then help each child select perfect gifts for their families, friends, and sometimes themselves.  Once the carts are full everyone comes back to the church where they are given lunch while more volunteers wrap all the presents.  This is the 9th year Trinity Lutheran Church has hosted the event which is made possible by donations from their congregation and local businesses.    The LBPD is honored that Officers are willing to give their time to participate in this event and we look forward to next year!
