On December 5th, 2020, the Silver Spring Township Police Department hosted their annual Shop with a Cop program. The police department has volunteers from numerous police agencies participate in the program each year. Students in K-5th grades, within the Cumberland Valley School District, are matched up with a law enforcement officer. The day starts with a breakfast for the students and officers. They all are later transported to Walmart where they shop with the officer, finding Christmas presents for the student and the student’s families. The students and officers are transported back to a location where the wrapping of the gifts takes place. The officers from the Mechanicsburg Police Department who participated this year were Officers Ethan Paulus, Ryan McCormick, Richard Wolfe, and Evan Shipley. Thank you to the Silver Spring Township Police Department for their efforts with this program. Please visit their Facebook page for more information about Shop with a Cop and all the hard work and dedication of so many which makes this such a success each year.
