Shop with a Cop Program
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The Shop with a Cop program exemplifies the Venice Police Department's motto of “Our citizens, Our Community, Our Commitment".
 
 
Local businesses and community members along with the Venice Police Department have recognized the need in the community and the impact this program has on the participating students. Each student is paired with Venice Police Department members both sworn and civilian. Throughout the day they experience a pleasant and positive experience with law enforcement officers, building bonds and promoting the student’s self-esteem.
 
The students are then taken to the Venice Wal-Mart and accompany their police officers throughout the store to purchase their back-to-school items such as supplies, clothing and shoes to facilitate a positive start to the school year provided by the generous Venice community.
