Saturday: Protect, Serve...And Shop
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department's annual 'Shop With A Cop' program was held Saturday.
40 young people got Walmart gift cards, and a chance to shop - for themselves or family - with help from sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement and emergency personnel.
The program has turned into a tradition.
"A lot of these children wouldn't have a Christmas if it wasn't for this program that we started," said Sheriff John Burns.
"You see the smile on their face, they love it."
And after the shopping trip? A pizza party at Sam's Club.
