The Sheriff Department of Livingston County is preparing for the sixth annual shop with a cop program.
In the shop with a cop program children from less affluent families are teamed up with a police officer. Together they will shop for Christmas gifts.

In a convoy of police guards to children and police officers drive from the elementary school to Wal-Mart. The shopping trip takes place December the sixth.

The trick completely depends on donations and the goal for this year is simple: help as many children as possible.

The Police Department accepts destinations but also asked people to buy a gift card from Wal-Mart to give that to the shop with a cop program.

The amount of money that each child can spend depends directly on the amount of money raised. In posteriors every child has been able to spend around hundred dollars.
