On Dec. 9, University Police joined area law enforcement agencies for Phelps County’s Shop with a Cop program, giving children in need the opportunity to shop for gifts with a law enforcement officer. Thanks to campus and community donors, University Police raised $5,500, surpassing last year’s donations by $4,000. Approximately 220 local children participated in the program this year.  

University Police launched a new fundraising campaign this year. You may have seen a life-size cutout of Chief Doug Roberts decorated with festive accessories. If you donated $20 or more, you could choose where the chief landed next, and you could add an embellishment or two.  

Special thanks to Michael Pierce, S&T’s photographer, and printing and mail services for helping produce the life-size traveling chief.
