What We Need

We need your help to make Christmas special for these local elementary students. Your support gets us closer to adding one more kid to the Laramie Shop with a Cop program. And, any remaining funds from this program will be kept in a nonprofit account through the Laramie Police Department Foundation for the local school district to buy school breakfast and lunches for students who cannot afford to do so on their own.

Shop with a Cop

The Laramie Police Department will hold its Annual Shop with a Cop (SWAC) event each December. In participation with officers, school counselors, social workers, and faculty in Albany County School Districts, approximately 30 elementary students will be selected and given a $150 Wal-Mart shopping spree.

The goal of the Shop with a Cop program is to foster positive relationships between local youth and officers. Each student will have $150.00 to spend on whatever they so choose; food, necessities and gifts for other family members.

To make the Laramie Police Department’s Shop with a Cop program unique, our additional goal will be to send each kiddo back home with a $75 Holiday Supper for their family to enjoy together. The idea is to both have the child shop with a law enforcement officer and build trust with our young people, while also assisting a whole family in need with a hot dinner.

Local law enforcement officers (“Cops”) in the Laramie area have partnered with the Albany County schools to identify one to three students in each elementary school. A uniformed Cop will pick up each student at their school in a marked police vehicle, and taken to Walmart in Laramie for their spree with an officer, deputy or trooper.

The Shop with a Cop (SWAC) program started in Laramie County, Wyoming by the Wyoming Highway Patrol Association (WHPA) in 2015 and involves the Cheyenne Police Department, Laramie County Sheriff’s Office, Wyoming State Parks and the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
