The Westminster Police Department annually hosts “Shop With A Cop” in Westminster. “Shop With A Cop” is a collaborative effort between the staff of our local Wal-Mart Store, the Westminster Police Department and the generous citizens and businesses of the greater Westminster area. The program is designed to provide children in need in our community with the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for themselves and their family members during these difficult economic times when they would otherwise have to go without. It also provides these children the opportunity to spend quality time with police officers and staff members of the Westminster Police Department “up close and personal” in a positive and non-confrontational environment.
We have recently established a charitable fund within the Community Foundation of Carroll County known as “The Supporters of the Westminster Police Department Fund”. All donations to this fund qualify as a 501c(3) tax-deductible charitable donation. Donation receipts will be provided upon request for tax purposes. Donation checks should be made to:
