Press release submitted by Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities


The Moline Police Department and Walmart will again hold their annual
Kids and Cops Holiday Shopping Event this Monday, December 3rd and Thursday December 6th, at the Moline Walmart.
Over 60 Moline school children will be participating in this two day event.

Walmart makes this all possible in part with a grant provided to the Moline Police Department's Community Police Officers (COP). Moline Police Officers also sought donations and sold concessions outside Walmart throughout the year.

Moline children will be Christmas shopping at Walmart with a Moline Police Officer by their side. Each child will receive $75.00 to purchase gifts for their family and one item for themselves. Officers and their students will then be treated to dinner at Butterworth Elementary School while being entertained with crafts, a balloon artist, and face painting.

The Moline Police Department COP Officers would like to thank the following organizations for participating and making this year's event possible.

- Johannes Bus Service
- Walmart
- Moline School District
- City of Moline
- I.H. Mississippi Valley Credit Union
- Moline Municipal Credit Union
