Time for ‘Shop with a Cop’

On Monday, Dec. 21 Adams County children will have the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping with local law enforcement officers.

The police departments in West Union, Manchester, Winchester, Seaman, and Peebles are participating in the “Shop with a Cop” (SWC) Christmas outreach program. The project is sponsored by the Adams County Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Lodge 31, the Sheriff’s Union, local school resource officers, and the Adams County Chiefs of Police.

Deputy Randy Walters, President of the Adams County FOP, explained, “This is our first year to participate in the Shop with a Cop program and we want to encourage everyone to donate so that young people in need can have a good Christmas.”

The Shop with a Cop program is for the needy children of Adams County. Participating young people were identified by local schools. The experience provides children with a fun-filled day of shopping with officers from each participating agency. It is a one on one experience that helps to create positive relationships with law enforcement.

The day’s events will begin at the Adams County Fairgrounds at 10 a.m. The children will participate in a parade through downtown West Union as they travel with officers to the local Wal-Mart. After they complete their shopping, the group will return to the fairgrounds for lunch.

For more information or to make a donation, contact the Deputy Walters through the Adams County Sheriff’s Department. Anyone interested in donating may also contact their local law enforcement agency: Chief Roy Stricklett at the West Union Police Department (937-544-2512), Chief Jeff Bowling at the Manchester Police Department (937-549-3230), Chief David Benjamin at the Winchester Police Department (937-695-5502), Chief Kevin Cross of the Seaman Police Department (937-386-3230), and Chief Robert Music of the Peebles Police Department (937-587-3191).
