Press Release:

On December 9th, 2017 members of the Batavia Police Department, the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office, and New York State Police Troop A, will be participating in the third annual “Shop with a Cop” event at Wal-Mart on Veterans Memorial Drive.  Grant money from Wal-Mart, designated specifically for this event was distributed equally to all three organizations. The schools within Genesee County assisted in choosing the children.  The City of Batavia Police Benevolent Association, Genesee County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, City of Batavia CSEA members, the City’s “Jeans for Friday” program, Department of Public Works (AFSCME) Union, and H.E. Turner & Co., Inc Funeral Home of Batavia & Bergen raised additional funds which enabled 20 extra children to participate.  A total of 50 children were invited to participate in this year’s event.  Once at Wal-Mart the children will take photographs with Santa Claus and meet with their individual "Cop".  Wal-Mart graciously hosts the event, allocates employees specifically for the event, and also donates gift wrapping materials.   Gift wrapping will be completed by the Young Adults Group from Batavia City Church, members of the Batavia Police Explorer’s Post and family members from Batavia Police Department and Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.

The Batavia Police Department, Genesee County Sheriff’s Office, and the New York State Police Troop A, would like to thank Wal-Mart for their generosity and assistance to make this a great event. We would also like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
