"Shop with a Cop" is a program that rewards children (ages 5 to 18) with the opportunity to purchase clothing and other necessities while shopping with a police officer.

“Shop with a Cop” is operated by a group of individuals that volunteer their time to solicit donations, identify and select children to reward.  The shopping trips are funded by donations from community members and local businesses.  

Starting in 2017 Rock PAL will be going on three shopping trips a year with one of them being the county wide event in December.

Children are selected to participate in a shopping trip based on the following criteria:

  • Financial Need
  • Staying in school
  • Fighting adversity
  • Avoiding a gang or criminal lifestyle

Completed applications can be emailed to Misty Widener at Misty.Widener@rocklin.ca.us or they can be delivered in person or by mail to the Rocklin Police Department, 4080 Rocklin Rd.
