Christmas with a Cop

The new Christmas with a Cop program takes place in December before the holiday season.  For every $100 we raise, a child from the Copley-Fairlawn School System gets the opportunity to participate in the program and do their Christmas shopping while being accompanied by a uniformed Officer.  The selected children are picked up in the morning from an officer in a police cruiser, taken to breakfast, shopping and then lunch. Donations are welcome and checks can be made out to Christmas with a Cop.  If you wish to help sponsor a child you can do so by sending your donation to Copley Police Department; c/o Officer Ballinger, Christmas with a Cop Program; 1280 Sunset Dr. Copley, OH 4431. Look for information in November to purchase raffle tickets to help support this event. If you would like further information feel free to email Officer Ballinger at:

Christmas with a Cop 2018

This year's Christmas with a Cop event was held Saturday, December 15th.  Copley had eleven (11) children participate this year, thanks to the donations from local businesses and residents.  The children were escorted by Police Officers in police cruisers from their homes to breakfast, then to Walmart for shopping!  After shopping, they had lunch at Chick-Fil-A to end our morning together.  This wonderful program is possible due to the generosity of local businesses, residents and many volunteers.  Thank you for helping add joy to the children's holiday season.  The link below will take you to the photo gallery to see the pictures from this year's event.
