Harris County Sheriff’s Office PAL Team Launches Shop with a Cop Essay Contest

December 03 2023

The holiday season is about to get brighter for young minds in the Houston and surrounding areas as the Harris County Sheriff’s Office PAL team unveils the 2023 Shop with a Cop Essay Contest.

Open to youth aged 8 to 17 years, this exciting opportunity invites participants to articulate their thoughts on "Who is my Hero and Why" in a concise 200-word essay. Submissions are to be emailed to communityengagementdiv@sheriff.hctx.net, with a deadline set for December 13, 2023.

Eight lucky winners will be selected and announced on December 15, 2023. These deserving winners will have the unique chance to participate in the Shop with a Cop event, generously sponsored by Target, on the morning of December 22, 2023. Participants must reside in the Houston or surrounding areas and have their own transportation to attend the event.

This contest serves as a platform for young individuals to express their thoughts on their personal heroes and potentially win an unforgettable experience alongside law enforcement officers. The Shop with a Cop initiative not only spreads joy during the festive season but also fosters positive interactions between the community's youth and law enforcement professionals.
