MEDIA RELEASE: CCSO preparing for 2020 Shop with a Cop events


The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is gearing up for the 16th consecutive year of Shop with a Cop. Shop with a Cop provides children with positive interaction and one-on-one time with law enforcement during the holidays. Shopping is done each year by deputies from the Sheriff’s Office along with officers from the Punta Gorda Police Department and Florida Wildlife Commission. The children are selected by their school counselors from grades 2-5.


The Shop with a Cop program is funded with support from our local Walmart stores, as well as donations from community members and partners. For more information, or if you wish to donate, please contact Chris Hall in Community Affairs at 941-575-5227 or
