From left are Ocean City Police Sgt. Dave Hall, Patrolman Jen Barbato, Chief Chad Callahan and Patrolman Mike Gray with some of the children who participated in the Shop with a Cop program. The Community Oriented Policing Unit participated in a Shop with a Cop program during the month of December. The Egg Harbor Township Police Athletic League has partnered with Wal-Mart and local police agencies to provide a shopping experience for children in the area. The event started with a breakfast with Santa and several other fun activities. The children then boarded a bus and traveled to the local Wal-Mart with police officers from the participating agencies. Once at Wal-Mart, each child was given a gift certificate that allowed them the opportunity to purchase presents. Police officers assisted the children with their selections.
