Shop with a Cop brings Christmas to Laurel County children

A few hundred children saw how Santa inspires others Saturday when officers from the Kentucky State Police post and Division of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement serving London participated in the annual Shop with a Cop program in Laurel County.

The London Police Department and the Laurel County Sheriff's Office also participated. The program used 50 officers to take about 200 children shopping for Christmas.

The children were allowed to purchase clothes and toys. The children were selected through the local schools and were chosen based on their level of need.
