Kids and Cops Christmas Event

Every year, the TPOA takes as many as 300 kids from Head Start and the Urban League to shop for the toys and clothing they want and need! In addition to the kids from those two agencies, Tucson Police Officers refer children that they meet on the street or in schools. Not only do these kids have a great time interacting with our officers, they get to meet Santa and are treated to yummy snacks. For some of these kids, this may be the first time that they have ever had positive interactions with the police. All of the kids have their pictures taken with their officers and are given that photo as a keepsake.

For the 5 years, this event has been held at the Target at 4040 North Oracle. Target has been a terrific host, and always gives great customer service to the kids. The store always provides the kids with free gifts as well, and has a raffle with great prizes for lucky kids.

After the kids and cops part ways, our officers are treated to a brunch. We encourage the families of our officers to attend both the shopping event as well as the brunch. This is a great time for officers to see friends from the past, as well as spend time with current squads. We have raffles for everyone, and the winners usually take home some great stuff! Our program would not be successful without the continued support from our officers that volunteer their time. In addition, our Tucson Police Explorers help every year in bagging the loot and shopping with kids.

We accept donations for the Cops 4 Kids program throughout the year. You can send donations to:

KidCare Fingerprinting

The Tucson Police Officer’s Association proudly offers Kids fingerprinting at community events throughout the year.

We have provided this service for thousands of children over the last several years and do so free of charge.

The fingerprinting is done using the very latest in digital equipment, and is not collected for any type of law enforcement purpose. A fingerprint card is generated with the childs name, picture and fingerprints. The card is then given to the parent in the event that there is ever an emergency involving the child.

TPOA officers are on scene during the events to answer questions and provide safety tips to parents.

Children are also often given souvenirs (when available).
