Cops for Kids
Cops for Kids is a program that provides children (ages 6 to 11) with the opportunity to spend the day with a police officer. The children are given a $100 Walmart gift card to purchase clothing and other necessities.
Children who are selected are nominated through APS Title 1 Homeless Project and local Law Enforcement. To help as many families as possible, if a family has received assistance through Cops for Kids in previous years, they are not eligible to participate in future events.
This has always been a successful event because of the officers and numerous volunteers who have donated their time to give back to their community.
Officers come from the Albuquerque Police Department, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, New Mexico State Police, Bosque Farms Police Department, University of New Mexico Police Department, Corrales Police Department and Laguna Police Department.
Cops for Kids is funded through donations, with every small donation Crime Stoppers and your local law enforcement can help brighten up a child’s holiday season. Please consider making a small donation. Your donation is tax deductible.
