2017 Annual Shop with a Cop Program

The Southport Police Department is proud to announce the collection of over six thousand dollars for the 2017 Annual Shop with a Cop Program. The program will allow approximately fifty-five children in the Southport area the chance to shop at Walmart of Southport with its local police officers. Children who would not receive a gift otherwise will be given a one hundred dollar gift card to spend.  We would like to thank the individuals and organizations that donated to the program.
