Everett police to host 7th Annual “Shop with a Cop” event

This December, the Everett Police Officers Association will host the 7th Annual Shop with a Cop event. However, children will not shop with police officers at a physical store this year. Instead, children will make a Christmas wish list and later this month officers will meet with the children to give them their gifts, get Santa photos and enjoy treats with hot cocoa.
