Wow! Talk about fun with a cause!

Join police officers from the Carlsbad Police Department, and surrounding cities, for a fun morning of delicious pancakes while supporting the happiness of local children during the holidays. What could be better?

Established in 1994, Shop with a Cop is an annual event sponsored by local law enforcement agencies, SeaWorld, Target and STAR/PAL that aims to provide children with a happier holiday season and encourage positive relationships with police. 

This year’s host agency is the Escondido Police Department and in December, over 300 uniformed officers from over 30 different local, state, and federal agencies, including Carlsbad, will volunteer their time and partner with a deserving child, selected from local schools, for a fun-filled day of private animal shows at SeaWorld and a $200 holiday shopping spree at Target.
