The Ormond Beach Police Department held its second-annual Shop with a Cop this Saturday.
Ormond Beach's Walmart was busier than usual on Saturday, Dec. 15, as Ormond Beach police officers scoured the toy aisles with 23 children for the agency's second-annual Shop with a Cop event.
The participating children, all who attend one of the local elementary schools, boarded an Oasis Church bus at the Police Department, and experienced a motorcade of lights and sirens while being escorted to Walmart. Once there, each of them was paired off with an officer, and was given a budget of $100 to spend on anything in the store, courtesy of Walmart.
After they finished shopping, the officers and children enjoyed burgers, hot dogs and sweets outside the store. This program is part of OBPD's outreach effort in the community.
