|Kids, cops and ... a cow?|
Thanks to the Colonial Regional Police, nine needy local families will have a Merry Christmas this year. For the eighth year in a row, police provided local children with an experience they'll remember the rest of their lives.

This “Shop with Cops” program was possible thanks to the generosity of local citizens, the police officers themselves, Giant Food Store, Wal mart, Chic-Fil-A and Red Robin.

"But you picked out a present for your brother," answered Claire, age 12.
SGT John, who doubles as Claire's father, said he loves this event and participates every year. "I wouldn't miss it for the world," he said, even though he was scheduled to go on duty in a few short. hours.
It's an experience the police remember, too.
