Kids can 'shop with a cop'
The city of Ashland Police Department hosts “Shop with a Cop 2014” starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, at Wal-Mart, 1360 Center Drive in Medford.
Uniformed officers and support staff have volunteered their time to take 17 underprivileged children holiday shopping.
Each child will be given a $100 gift card to spend on themselves. The purpose of the event is to give the kids a happier holiday season and to interact with law enforcement officers in a positive setting, the department said in a news release.
