Christmas with a Cop is a program that was designed to give kids a unique holiday experience while benefiting families that may need some extra help during the holidays. The program also helps to strengthen relationships between the communities and the police officers that serve them. For every $100 we raise, a child from the Copley-Fairlawn school system gets the opportunity to participate in the program and shop for Christmas while being accompanied by a uniformed officer. That morning, the kids are taken to breakfast and transported in marked cruisers.
Names of children in need are given to one of our Officers by the counselors from the school system or school administration. If anyone knows of a family or a child in the Copley/Fairlawn area that would benefit from this program, please forward their information to the Copley Police Department and we will have an Officer reach out to the family.
The program has been rewarding and very successful. Raffle tickets are available for those who would like to purchase them or sell them to help raise money for this worthy event. Donations are always welcome and checks can be made out to Christmas with a Cop. Please either drop off or mail your donation to the Copley Police Department. In the past, we have raised over $1,000 which has allowed us to help over ten families.
Thank you to Autobahn Service Center, Inc. for another generous donation toward the Christmas with a Cop Event!!
Stay safe and healthy while having a wonderful Holiday Season!
In December 2023; Copley participated in the Christmas with a Cop program with 12 local kids. Sgt. Marmet, Officer Harris, Officer Ogletree, Officer Garofalo, Officer Mack and Officer Rafferty participated in this event. The kids were able to shop at Walmart and then have lunch. Thank you to the management at Walmart for holding this annual event!
