Paulding County’s annual Shop with a Cop returns this holiday season.
Paulding Cops for Kids, Inc. is in its 22nd year and takes underprivileged children who live in Paulding County and pairs them with a Deputy to go shopping at Christmas. This year’s event will take place Saturday December 12, at 7 a.m. at the Wal-Mart on Marietta Highway.
Paulding Cops for Kids, Inc. targets children ages 6 to 13 in an effort to promote positive interaction with the young people of Paulding County and the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office will no longer accept siblings that are under the age of 6 and over the age of 13 (even if they are from the same household). Families who participated in the Cops for Kids program for the past two years (2018 and 2019) will not be eligible to participate in 2020.
