The Barbourville Police Department held its annual Shop with a Cop Monday. Eighteen children began their day with a pizza lunch at the Barbourville Fire Department followed by a visit and pictures with Santa Claus.

Afterwards, the officers took the children to Wal-Mart and gave each of them $125 to spend on whatever they wanted. Several of the officers’ wives and children assisted with the children’s shopping trip.
