NEWS RELEASE 08/10/18
On August 9, 2018, members of The Southampton Town Police Department, The Southampton Town Police Explorers, and the New York State Police participated in a “Shop with a Cop” event sponsored by Target Stores. The event was a outstanding success helping children from Southampton Town purchase much needed school supplies for the upcoming school year. Target in Riverhead sponsored the program and Southampton Town Policeman’s Benevolant Association provided extra funds to purchase additional supplies for the children. Roccos Pizza in Riverhead and Atlantic Landscaping in Westhampton Beach donated a fun filled dinner for the participants to feast on. The department members and children enjoyed fun filled activities, shopping and dinner together. The department continues to reach out to our community to assist those who might need a helping hand.
