The Sevierville Police Department Community Resource Unit and other department members have scheduled the 2023 Shop With a Sevierville Cop event for December 19-20.
With assistance from local school administrators and School Resource Officers, SPD will select local children to take shopping for Christmas presents, have breakfast and lunch and spend quality time with officers. These children would likely receive few, if any, Christmas presents without this program.
The event is centered around enriching the lives of our youth while fostering a positive experience with law enforcement.
SPD officers are asking for donations from the public to help pay for the shopping trips. A Shop With SWAT bank account has been established at Citizens National Bank (CNB) to receive donations. Residents may donate at any CNB in Sevier County; be sure to mention the Shop With SWAT account. Any unused money that is collected will remain in the account to be used next Christmas and/or to purchase back-to-school supplies for those in need.
