Today, the Winnipeg Police Service in collaboration with school divisions throughout the City of Winnipeg and in partnership with the St. Vital Centre will host the 8th Annual Winnipeg COPSHOP event.


COPSHOP is an opportunity for students to experience an unforgettable day of shopping with a police officer. Students who participate in this event are selected by administrators from their respective school divisions.  The selection criteria's for students are based on a need, specific academic or sporting achievements and volunteerism.

COPSHOP has been a huge success since its inception in 2007.  The number of students who participate in this event has grown from thirty to sixty. This initiative provides the Winnipeg Police Service a wonderful opportunity to connect positively with youths to foster life-long relations with law enforcement and their community.

The day will unfold with the students being picked up at their schools by police officers and taken to St. Vital Centre, where they will be given $200 dollars to enjoy a two hour Christmas shopping spree.  They will also receive a pizza lunch and a gift bag donated by the merchants of the mall.  All costs associated with this event are generously covered by the St. Vital Centre.

Members of the media are invited to attend.

 9:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Copshop kids and officers arrive at St. Vital Centre (Food Court)
