The 2020 Shop With a Cop (SWAC) was conducted a bit differently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Jim Krupka, Lombard Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (LCPAAA) member and member of the SWAC committee. Instead of taking children to the Lombard Target to shop for their families, members of the LCPAAA and Lombard Police Department shopped for children’s gifts, and gift cards for the adults. Nine families were selected through local schools and food pantries. The shoppers returned to Lombard Village Hall to wrap the presents, and on Saturday, Dec. 5, three teams personally delivered the gifts to the recipient families. The photos show Officer Aleksander Barylowicz offering a little holiday cheer.
