“Shop with a Cop” is a chance for the Prairie Village Police Department to team up with needy and deserving children in our community.
In 2015, the Police Department hosted ten children identified by school counselors and the Police Department D.A.R.E. officer. Once again this year, police officers will take children holiday shopping and pay for their purchases. Children may buy gifts for both themselves and family members. After shopping, each child will be treated to dinner and have their packages wrapped free of charge.
If you are a Prairie Village business or resident who would like to make a contribution to this special program (monetary or specific gifts for children), please contact Jennifer Wright at 385-4607.
Also, don’t forget to drop off your old cell phone at the Police Station, 7710 Mission Road. The Police Department is collecting phones to help support the “Shop-With-A-Cop” program. A cell phone collection box is located in the Police Station lobby. Used phones may be dropped off at any time for recycling. Your old cell phone is our treasure!
