29th Annual Shop with a Cop

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) is hosting its 29th Annual Shop with a Cop this holiday season. This highly anticipated event aims to bring together law enforcement and social workers to create an opportunity for children to create a positive interaction between children and law enforcement.

Through collaborative efforts with local agencies including Benton County Sheriff’s Office Parole and Probation and the Child Welfare offices of the Department of Human Services, a select group of elementary-aged children have been preselected to participate in this unique experience.

Last year’s event was a resounding success, as law enforcement had the privilege of taking 65 Benton County kids shopping for gifts, surpassing the 2021 participation of 49 children.

Each participant will receive a gift card, allowing them the freedom to choose their own presents. It is worth mentioning, many generous public safety professionals contribute from their own pockets the day of shopping to ensure a child can purchase exactly what they desire.

Shop with a Cop is made possible solely through donations from dedicated law enforcement personnel and community members. Financial contributions are accepted throughout the year and BCSO welcomes any support you can provide. Tax-deductible cash or checks can be made payable to “The Benton County Sheriff’s Foundation” with a memo indicating “Shop with a Cop.” Donations can be dropped off at or mailed to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, located at 180 NW 5th St. Corvallis, OR 97330.

BCSO extends its sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported this program in the past and looks forward to another successful year in bringing joy and positive interactions between law enforcement and children in the community.
