"Cop Hop" Fundraiser benefits San Diego Police Dept.

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - In La Jolla, hundreds of people are raising money to help the San Diego Police Department get valuable equipment and training to protect our communities.

The first-ever cop hop featured plenty of exciting music, entertainment and delicious food.

Proceeds will go to the San Diego Police Foundation-- which raises funds to buy vital equipment for officers-- at a time when budget cuts are becoming all-too common.

"There was a time when we were using road maps to fly the aircraft. The helicopter to and from different locations. Now it's GPS tracking. The foundation's just been wonderful," Chief William Lansdowne of the San Diego Police Department said.
