BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. - A group of 30 Blue Springs police officers and school public safety officers teamed up with students from area schools for the annual Shop with a Cop program Saturday morning.

Each year police officers team up with disadvantaged children to shop with an officer and purchase $150.00 worth of holiday gifts for their families at the Target store.

The program is an opportunity for children to socialize with officers in a positive atmosphere and reinforce that fact that police officers are friends in the community.

This is the seventh year the Blue Springs Police Department has participated in the program.
