ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Christmas came a little early for 30 children in central Kentucky thanks to Kentucky State Police.

Wednesday, the Elizabethtown State Police post hosted its annual shop with a trooper program.

The troopers spent about $150 on each child and said it is a great way to give back to the community.

The troopers said they really look forward to this event and seeing the smiles on the children's faces is a nice break from the job.
