Annual Shop with a Cop event

On Dec. 10, the Tehachapi Police Foundation hosted 17 local children at their annual Shop with a Cop event. After enjoying pizza from Hungry Howie's at the Tehachapi Police Department, the children rode to Walmart in police vehicles, sirens blaring, for a shopping spree. This year the Police Foundation was joined by Bear Valley Springs Police, Stallion Springs Police, California City Police, Kern Country Sheriff's Office and California State Parks Assn. The children that were chosen to shop had demonstrated leadership ability or performed acts of kindness throughout the year. Shop with a Cop is funded through community business and individual donations.
