This past Saturday, 10 investigators from the District Attorney’s Bureau on Investigations participated in the annual Shop With A Cop program.
At 6:45 am the investigators paired up with the children, who are selected by their schools, as they arrived at SeaWorld. The children were treated to a special breakfast which included hot cocoa with marshmallows.
After breakfast the children had their own private dolphin show before making their way back to the police cars that took them with lights and sirens to a Target store.
While at Target, the children had $150 to spend on themselves and family. All of the children that were with the DA Investigators made sure to shop for family members.
Supervising Investigator Chris Raagas has been participating in the annual event since 2002.
“My favorite part is shopping with the child at Target and having them get gifts for their parents and siblings,” he said.
Members from the Bureau participated in several charitable events throughout the year to help fund this great holiday event.
