On Saturday December 13th the Maricopa PD, in conjunction with For Our City Maricopa, held its 3rd annual Shop with a Cop. This year, 32 children were treated to a complimentary breakfast provided by McDonald's inside the Wal-Mart. The children were then allowed to shop with MPD officers to buy essential items, such as: jackets, clothing attire, shoes and gifts for other members of their families. The officer and their shopping partners had a gift card for $125 and were strongly encouraged to spend all of it. More than 33 MPD officers participated in the event, accompanying the children through shopping and gift wrapping. Members of both Police Explorers and VIPS also assisted in gift wrapping as well as setting up the City Hall to host the conclusion of the event. Also as Shop with a Cop helpers were members of the Maricopa Youth Council drivers from the Maricopa Comet and members from Maricopa City Council to include Mayor Christian Price, Councilwoman Peg Chapados and Councilman Vincent Manfredi.
The holiday season is upon us; the Maricopa Police Department wants to warn people about the riskof packages being stolen off your doorstep. Most packages that are delivered to residents are left at the customer's door, even if no one is home to accept them. Unfortunately, this also brings out individuals who are looking for crimes of opportunity, as well as criminals that actually follow delivery trucks into neighborhoods. There are many steps that home owners can take to reduce the chance of their deliveries being stolen.
