On Saturday December 9, 2017, 90+ members of the King County Sheriff's office as well as members of multiple local, State, and Federal law enforcement agencies participated in the annual Shop with a Cop event.

Every December, this event is held at the Covington Wal-Mart. This year's event was hosted by the Maple Valley and Covington Rotary Clubs, The Soup Ladies, Black Diamond Kiwanis, InterAct THS, Black Diamond Eagles, as well as donations by many local businesses.

This year, over 600 kids ranging in age from 6 months to 15 years old, who may not otherwise have gotten many presents, were given a chance to meet Santa and get their picture taken with him before they were given their own personal police escort through the store and the opportunity to spend $50 on presents for themselves, a sibling, parent, grandparent, whomever they chose.

They included every child living in a Mary's Place shelter.

It also gave the kids and the officers a chance to interact in a non-traditional, fun, and positive way.

Other sponsors and donors include: Wal-Mart, Tahoma Athletic Club, BECU, Burien Chevrolet, Clements General Construction INC, IMT, visilink, Lacey O’Malley, The Tamara Paul Group, Rein Fire Ranch, Covington Copy it. Mail it, Solid Surface solutions.

Shoreline and Kenmore police are contracted from the King County Sheriff's Office.
