2017 Annual ‘Shop with a Cop’ and ‘Cops and Kids Night’ in December
It’s time once again to extend Christmas cheer. On Tuesday, December 5, 2017 the Shop with a Cop event will take place.
During this event a child will be given $100 to shop for Christmas gifts with a police officer at Wal-Mart on Arkansas Blvd. Officers from all over Texarkana will line up at the Bi-State at 8:30AM and convoy with lights and sirens to Wal-Mart. This year, with the continuous support of our local contributors, almost 100 children from here in Texarkana will receive something special this holiday season.
Cops and Kids
On Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 at 6PM, the annual Cops and Kids meal has been scheduled at the Four States Fairgrounds. Police Officers of the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department will meet at the station at 5PM and form two convoys, one parade formation will travel to The Texarkana Baptist Orphanage and the other to The Watersprings Ranch. The children will ride with a Police Officer in a Patrol Car, with lights and sirens, to the Fairgrounds.
The Annual Shop with a Cop program and Cops and Kids program is a spirit of fellowship that takes place during the holiday season and reinforces the positive aspects of community and Police relationships.
