Mill Creek Police Officer Scott Eastman had the hat, the laugh and the jolly disposition of Santa as he entertained some of the 174 underprivileged children and their families who shopped for gifts at the Target store in Everett during the annual Shop with a Cop event this month. Five members of the Mill Creek force volunteered their own time to be part of the community outreach activity. Check out more photos from Shop with a Cop in the print edition of The Beacon.

Five police officers from Mill Creek—including Chief Greg Elwin—volunteered to take part in the third annual Shop with a Cop event.
