18th annual Shop with a Cop

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A holiday tradition continues Saturday with the 18th annual Shop with a Cop.

More than 300 less-fortunate children enjoyed breakfast with Santa and a private show at Seaworld before going on a $100 shopping spree at Target with police.

"Well what it does for the kids is real important. It gives them a mentorship with a police officer to try to overcome the fear and develop a relationship," Sgt. Patty Clayton of SDPD said

The children are nominated by the non-profit organization Star/Pal, through school and community recommendations, and police referrals.
