Cordele Police Department hosts 'Shop with a Cop'

Cordele Police Department hosts 'Shop with a Cop'

The Blair single mother is working two jobs just to make ends meet.

"They were chosen based on a few criteria like income, but also how much they blossomed by being in the program", he said.

The Shop with a Cop program in Luzerne County was made possible by a grant through Walmart. That's double the number of children that the FOP has previously helped.

Officer Dan Shipanik helped Abraham try on winter boots and pick out pajamas, socks and hats for himself and his sisters.

Since 2006, officers and staff of the City of Kiel Police Department have helped kids have a nicer holiday season spending time with them shopping for gifts. Each child received approximately $100 to spend on gifts. "I got them some good stuff". "We like to purchase those items in addition to the toys we might buy". The gift cards were provided through the generous donations of many Escambia County businesses, organizations, families, and individuals.

All the money raised by the St. Francois County Sheriff's Association throughout the year stays in the county.

"I was actually afraid of police officers, which is kind of ironic", said Kostedt.

The goal for law enforcement is to bond with the kids so they have their trust when they are in a moment of crisis.

For more than a decade, Amigos en Azul's "Shop with a Cop" has touched the lives of thousands of children.

Riley Stephenson, 7, picked out a giant Barbie doll that looked very similar to the little girl.

"I lay out my uniform, my Santa hat, the night before", Evans said. "At school, the social worker told me about it".

Detective John Reed said the program is open to anyone up to age 18 because "kids in danger of going one way or the other are usually teenagers". It helps kids understand that police aren't only there when someone misbehaves.

Both Burr and her husband, Jason, suffered injuries this year, which has kept them from working.

"It wasn't really hard to get it organized", said Trina Reagan, who works in human resources at Target.

"It's a joy for them and us", Misty said.
