Our University of Michigan police officers joined several local law enforcement agencies to participate in the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s 20th Annual Shop with a Cop event at the Scio Township Meijer. The tradition was conducted virtually for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Code-named “Operation Special Delivery,” local officers, firefighters, and many volunteers shopped with their participating children via a Zoom call checking many items off their holiday wish lists. Meijer also donated a coat, snow pants, a hat, and gloves to each participating child.
K9 Nike was enjoying his last appearance at his favorite event with K9 Police Officer Sue Upton. He enjoyed all the love and attention as he wandered the store popping into Zoom calls to say “hello” to the children.
Donations for the annual Shop with a Cop event are collected year-round. If you would like to donate, visit the WCSO Shop With A Cop Facebook Page.
