Shop With a Cop (SWAC) 

Looking to make this holiday season memorable for your children, but in need of financial assistance? "Shop with a Cop" (SWAC) is back for Christmas 2021 and is now accepting applications for school-aged children who are Gloucester County residents.  Applications are due no later than November 12, 2021 and can be downloaded from the link here, found in the Gloucester County Jail lobby, or seen on our Facebook pages.  Please fill forms out as legibly as possible and return all completed forms to the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office, Attention to Shop With A Cop. They can be dropped off at our jail lobby, mailed to 7502 Justice Drive, Gloucester VA, 23061, or attached in an email sent to    



To be eligible, the child must be a school-aged resident of Gloucester County and be available to shop on December 11 at 8:30am. All applications will be considered, however, applying for holiday assistance with SWAC does not guarantee acceptance into the program. An applicant's need for assistance must first be assessed and compared with other applications along with the amount of aid that is available. The final determination for inclusion in our program will be made by the independent SWAC Executive Board. For any further questions or to make a donation to Shop With a Cop, please email us at
