Gaithersburg Police Department
The Gaithersburg Police Department, in partnership with Lakeforest Mall sponsored its 4th Annual “Shop with a Cop” program on Tuesday, December 19th.
Twelve police officers representing the Gaithersburg Police, Montgomery County Police Department, Montgomery County (MD) Sheriff's Office and the Maryland State Police were each paired with a child for a holiday shopping excursion at the mall. The children were selected from referrals to Gaithersburg’s Holiday Giving program. After shopping, the shoppers and police officers took pictures with Santa and then ate dinner together. While everyone dined, Explorers from the Montgomery County Police Explorers Post 1986 wrapped gifts.
Giftcards and dinner for this event were graciously donated by Lakeforest Mall.
Pictures with Santa and the plush polar bears were graciously donated by the Gaithersburg Police Foundation.
