Shop with a Cop

The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office “Shop with a Cop” Holiday Event takes take place mid-December at Walmart in Rifle, CO, with the exact date/time to be announced. In 2022, through generous donations from businesses and citizens across Garfield County, 35 local disadvantaged children and their families were supported during the holiday season. 


The program is designed to unite Garfield County deputies and public safety employees with local disadvantaged children for a special day of holiday shopping. Children and families will be carefully selected and screened by a committee of local law enforcement officers to reach those most in need. Approximately $200 will be spent on each child. Our goal is to sponsor as many children as possible through the support of donations from our citizens and businesses here in Garfield County. Contributions directly benefit the “Shop with a Cop” program but can also be used at the GCSO’s discretion for other community programs as appropriate.


The GCSO strongly believes “Shop with a Cop” to be a worthwhile program, one that will benefit the less fortunate children and families of Garfield County. Your tax-deductible donation will go towards supporting expenses in relation to holiday gifts for less fortunate children. Donations can be made online via this web page or dropped off at the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office in Glenwood Springs or the Sheriff’s Annex in Rifle. Please make checks payable to Garfield County Sheriff’s Office with “Shop with a Cop” in the memo line.


We are grateful for your consideration and support for this event as we strive to help our community.
