On Dec. 8, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with Walmart on South Transit Road in the Town of Lockport hosted the seventh annual Shop with a Cop event. This event pairs up children with deputies, who travel with them to Walmart in a patrol car to shop for gifts for themselves and or family members. Once their shopping was complete, the children were treated to lunch, which was provided by Walmart.

Sheriff James R. Voutour said, “This event is all about building relationships with the children and letting them know we are here for them. The deputies who participated in this event volunteer their time and look forward to it every year. We are grateful for the staff at the Lockport Walmart and the continuous support they provide to make this event a success.”

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office received a Community Grant from the Walmart Foundation which allows for the purchase of gift cards for the children to use while they shop.
