Today marked the first "Shop with a Cop" event for the Barbourville City Police Department. Before the shopping spree began, children were treated to lunch and there was even a special visit from jolly ole Saint Nick himself.
"If it wasn't for a love, most of us will never be able to express, then Christmas wouldn't exist. So it's nice to be able to share just some of that love from the Barbourville Police Department." says officer Steve Owens.
Fourteen children attended the event and were taken to the Barbourville Walmart where they could spend one hundred dollars however they wanted.
