LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It was an early Christmas for approximately 25 children in WAVE Country. They were able to Shop with a Cop alongside officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department's Second Division.

The holiday shopping took place at the Walmart on Raggard Road in the Pleasure Ridge Park area. The officers raised enough money to spend around $200 on each child letting them pick out what they want for Christmas.

Officers said it's a great chance to give kids a positive interaction with police early in their lives.
