Rocklin PD seeks support for Shop with a Cop



On December 15th and 16th,  2012, officers from the Rocklin Police Department in conjunction with the other local enforcement agencies will join forces to deliver holiday joy and cheer to 50 underprivileged children and teens in the Placer County area.

 This special "Shop with a Cop" event rewards youth who are in financial need, working hard in school, living a crime-free lifestyle, and making strides to improve their situation and attitude. Police officers donating their time are paired up with these youths to take them shopping for clothing and gifts for themselves and their families, in support of their successes towards becoming good citizens.

 The youth participating in this program are nominated by their schools, police officers and other community members.  If you know of a child in Rocklin between the ages of 5 and 18 who fit the above criteria, please submit a letter of nomination to Rocklin Officer Chris Osborne at the address listed below by November 9, 2012.

They are seeking community financial support to make this non profit program possible.  Their goal in Rocklin is to raise $1,500 to sponsor 5 children of the 50 children participating county-wide. Donations will pay for each child to receive $250 to be used on December 15 during their shopping event with a uniformed police officer, plus $50 to fund a special dinner for the child and his/her parent(s) scheduled for December 16 at William Jessup University.

They are also accepting donations, gifts, gift cards, etc., to be used for a silent auction held in conjunction with the dinner.  Community members wishing to donate funds or items for this cause may make checks payable to Roseville Police Activities League (RPAL non profit 501(3)(c) tax ID #68-0347253).  Please mail or bring them to Officer Chris Osborne at Rocklin PD: 4080 Rocklin Road, Rocklin, CA 95677.  You may also contact Officer Osborne at (916) 625-5400, ext. # 5780, or via email at chris.osborne@rocklin.ca.us.

 They greatly appreciate the community's support for the "Shop with a Cop" program, and thank sponsors in advance for their kindness and generosity.
