Door County Chop and Shop with a Cop returns to its roots

You will find members of Door County’s law enforcement community out with area kids on December 4th as the annual Chop and Shop with a Cop resumes after a pandemic-induced hiatus. The annual event pairs law enforcement officers with a child for an entire day beginning with a trip at an area tree farm where the kids pick out their family’s tree. The day continues with shopping and a visit with Santa Claus before ending the fun with wrapping the gifts they picked out for family members and a pizza party. Last year was different due to the pandemic with Santa and law enforcement making house calls with the tree and presents already in tow. It was a hard year away from the families for Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard, who has nurtured the program for the better part of two decades.

Approximately 30 children will participate in this year’s Chop and Shop with a Cop in Door County. Sternard is very appreciative of the community support they have received over the years for the event. If you would like to help out this year, you can make monetary donations or donate items like stocking stuffers, gift wrap, and more to the Door County Sheriff's Department.
