Kids teamed up with police officers Saturday at Shop With a Cop events in Kane and DuPage counties.
Law enforcement agencies in Dundee Township took kids holiday shopping at the Walmart in Carpentersville.
In DuPage County, teams of local officers helped kids with their shopping at the Bloomingdale Meijer.
According to Shop With a Cop of Dundee Township, the events are intended to establish and build positive relationships between police officers and children of the community. Organizers hope to provide a joyful holiday for underprivileged children who, without this event, may not experience one.
Each year Shop with a Cop grows in number of kids invited to participate, according to the Dundee Township group.
