Shop With a Cop pairs officers with record number of students Shopping More than 200 kids rewarded with Target shopping spree for improving reading scores – SANJOSE

By Robert Salonga rsalonga@bayareanewsgroup.com SANJOSE » For a couple of hours Wednesday, the Target store on Coleman Avenue was arguably the safest place in the South Bay when over 200 elementary school students each got their own police escorts for a holiday shopping spree as a reward for improving their reading skills over the past fall. It marked the 12th annual signature event for Shop With a Cop Silicon Valley, which spends every year fundraising and motivating students in underserved communities in the South Bay and aims to build early trust police among children in neighborhoods where the typical police presence involves critical or violent encounters. “The first time kids see a police officer, it should not be in a moment of crisis,” San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia said. “Some of these kids come from areas where when law enforcement is there, it’s not for a positive reason. This (event) is great for all of us. I’m not sure who has more fun today, them or us.” The students, who hailed from Los Arboles Literacy & Technology Academy, as well as Arbuckle, Gardner, K.R. Smith and Santee elementary schools, were given $150 gift cards to spend Wednesday. They were cheered on by scores of police officers from throughout the Bay Area, as well as sports mascots like the San Francisco 49ers’ prospector Sourdough Sam, the San Jose Giants’ orange gorilla Gigante and the San Jose Earthquakes’ Q, a blue humanoid creature of indeterminate origin. Darrell Cortez, a retired veteran SJPD officer and executive director of the local Shop With a Cop program, said the number of children rewarded this year was the most ever.
