CHATHAM – Today CPD officers had the pleasure of taking a group of Monomoy Regional Middle School students to Hyannis for “Shop With a Cop”. This annual event partners students with members of the police department for a trip to lunch followed by some holiday shopping. Numerous Cape police departments from Bourne to Provincetown participated.

The Chatham Police Association provides funding for two students to participate in this annual event but for the second year in a row a generous Chatham citizen provided funding for FIVE additional students for a total of 7 kids from MRMS. Each student is given $150 to do some holiday shopping for either themselves or for family or friends.

Students are nominated by the school for this opportunity based on attributes such as character, leadership, in-school effort and overall attitude.
