Cops for Kids

As an outreach to our community Crime Stoppers and the Albuquerque Police Department are proud to sponsor over 100 under privileged children each year to participate in this one day event.

Children who are selected are referred by Title 1 (homeless project.)  The Crime Stoppers liaison then screens every applicant and carefully selects the participants.

The event consist of each child being paired up with their very own personal Law Enforcement Officer for the day.

During this event, the child will be picked up at their home and taken to a full breakfast provided by Furr’s.  After breakfast, a lights and siren caravan will take place and head for Walmart.  Each child will be given a $100.00 gift card to purchase clothes, shoes and a toy.  Walmart also provides each family with a turkey and all the fixings for a Christmas dinner.

Every child receives a back pack (provided by BCSO) filled with needed items such as toiletries.

The child will then be caravaned to Main Event for lunch, games, bowling and more!  The children also get to meet Santa and his elves who arrive on APD’s Air 1.  At the end of the day, each child is returned home and will have experienced a joyous holiday.
