Shop till they dropped...for a good cause! Students in the College's Law Enforcement Program teamed up with 11 police agencies from around the Treasure Valley to support 120 kids for the 13th annual Shop With a Cop.

Agencies from Canyon and Owyhee Counties started the day with breakfast with their assigned child before heading to Walmart on Idaho Center Blvd. in a procession of police vehicles with lights flashing and sirens blaring. Each child was selected based on need. The officers and deputies assisted the kids in shopping for family members first. Once those lists were filled, the child was able to shop for something for themselves.

“This is just another example of students putting the needs of others above their own," shared Director of Law Enforcement Program, LeRoy Forsman. "It exemplifies the importance of giving back and making the community a better place to live."
