The Scotts Valley Peace Officer’s Association Charitable Foundation organizes and puts on the annual “Cops ‘n’ Rodders” antique car show. The show occurs every year on the third Saturday in July.
The car show begins with registration at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Show participants then engage in a police-escorted cruise along East Cliff Drive to Capitola. The cruise then travels to Siltanen Park in Scotts Valley where cars will be displayed to the public. Registered cars will be judged, and the best two cars in each category will be honored with a plaque. In addition, one participant will receive the Chief’s Choice award for Best in Show and their vehicle will be displayed on the event t-shirt the following year.
Funds raised through the car show are only used to sponsor local school and recreation sports teams, youth organizations, Sober Graduation Nights, along with scholarships to local youth.
Besides the car show itself, the event typically includes police/fire/safety exhibits including a helicopter visit and a police dog demonstration from local law enforcement agencies.
