HPD To Participate in Shop With A Cop

On December 16, 2017, police from several police departments will partner with the Harrisburg Police Athletic League (HPAL) to participate in the annual “Shop with a Cop” program.  Everyone will meet at the Heinz-Menaker Senior Center at 8 AM.  Officers will be partnered with children from the community.  All will enjoy breakfast prepared by volunteers before heading out to Walmart to purchase Christmas presents for the child’s family.  Everyone will return to the Heinz-Menaker Senior Center to wrap all the presents.

This year the Harrisburg Bureau of Police participated in a “No Shave” November.  Officers were permitted to grow a beard from mid-November until January 2nd for a donation of $25.  The department raised $2,000 for the “No Shave” November and will present the money to HPAL during the “Shop with a Cop” event.
