Youngsters throughout the community awoke Saturday morning to enjoy a happy holiday treat as the annual Shop With a Cop program took time again this year to ensure that local youth have a Merry Christmas.
Beginning at the Tuscan Event Center, personnel from the Price City Police Department, Carbon County Sheriff’s Office, Helper, Wellington and East Carbon police departments as well as the Utah Highway Patrol met with families participating in the event to enjoy a breakfast courtesy of McDonald’s.
Following breakfast, children were then given the opportunity to experience a ride in a law enforcement vehicle. After loading the youngsters, law enforcement officers turned on their lights and sirens and escorted the families, in fashion, to WalMart. At WalMart, all those participating then grouped up with an officer and were able to peruse the many goods and items in the store to purchase as gifts to themselves or others.
