Op­ti­mists hold Shop with a Cop

The Star Democrat - - LIFE -

For the sixth year, Tal­bot Op­ti­mist Club and its part­ners spon­sored Shop with a Cop, match­ing po­lice of­fi­cers with some lucky fifth-graders from Tal­bot County. Through do­na­tions from spon­sors, each child is given $100 he or she can use to buy Christ­mas presents for their fam­ily, with the help of a po­lice of­fi­cer. Eas­ton and St. Michaels po­lice de­part­ments and the Tal­bot County Sher­iff’s Of­fice par­tic­i­pated in the shop­ping spree, which was fol­lowed by gift wrap­ping and lunch. The pro­gram is de­signed to help chil­dren fos­ter a bet­ter re­la­tion­ship with lo­cal po­lice and see them as a friend and source of help.
