The annual Shop with a Cop was held recently at ALCO and at Walmart. Sgt. Tom Harrison participated at ALCO. Those participating at Walmart included Deputies John Barnett, Jerod Curtis. Garrett Conover and Capt. Kyle Ekker. They helped the participants choose gifts and pushed the cart with their load of treasures.

The deputies also kept track of the spending of the child. ALCO and Walmart and other local businesses donated the money for use in the Shop with a Cop program.

Emery County Sheriff Greg Funk said, "I think the Shop with a Cop program is fantastic, it gives the officers a chance to interact with kids and they can see a police officer in a new light. The officers can mingle with the families at a fun and happy event. It's not the normal line of duty for the deputy. A lot of people need a little extra help around Christmas time.

"Our deputies are happy to provide this service with our youth. Each of the elementary schools nominate a child or family to Shop with a Cop. This service helps brighten the holidays for some of our county residents," said Sheriff Funk.

This night's shoppers included Mychigan Mead with Sgt. Harrison and Tiara Lucero with Sgt. Mitch Vetere. They went up and down the toy aisles searching for the perfect gifts. They were looking for items for themselves and also shopping for siblings and parents.
