The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department Shop with a Cop event is set for Sunday, Dec. 8 and donations are now being accepted to help children have a merrier Christmas this season.
Sheriff Michael Gayer said monetary donations can be made to the Shop with a Cop account at any Alliance Bank so the children less fortunate can choose an item for Christmas this year.
The Shop with a Cop event in Pulaski County is held every year at Christmas time and a list of families in need is provided to police during the holiday season. The police officers and other personnel from the sheriff’s department help the kids shop for an item for Christmas at a store. This year, the kids will be shopping at a location in Monticello.
Sheriff Gayer added that this is fun for the officers as they get to see the kids have fun shopping for Christmas. The kids also get to learn a little about the work at the sheriff’s department during their time together.
