COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Kids across the Chattahoochee Valley had the opportunity to shop with a cop.

The Fraternal Order of Police held its ‘Cops, Kids and Christmas’ program.

Children and officers gathered at the Columbus Civic Center ice rink and left in a motorcade going to Walmart to begin their shopping.

They had a chance to shop for Christmas presents for their families and get small items for themselves.

Fifty kids shopped with the officers -- 20 were from the Boys and Girls Club, and community members nominated the rest.

Sgt. Kelley Phillips says the event put a smile on both the officers’ and children’s faces.

This event happens annually, hoping got make Christmas a little bit brighter.
