About Shop with a Cop:
Each year, the law enforcement in the area and the Southeastern Idaho Community Action Agency Inc. to host the annual Shop with a Cop event.
Deputies and officers are paired with a child who would benefit from a positive experience with law enforcement in hopes of building or improving relationships between law enforcement and the community.

Then, the child and officer drive with the patrol car lights flashing to the Chubbuck Walmart, where they spend the next few hours shopping for presents. Together, the child and officer purchase gifts for each of the child’s immediate family members.
