Shop with a cop: Kids and deputies


December 14, 2017

I am pleased to announce that the Wahkiakum County Sheriff's Office is coordinating a Shop With a Cop Program this year. Thanks to donors, Emergency Manager Beau Renfro, and the STARS volunteers we are making this wish a reality.

On Saturday December 16th, 10 kids will be accompanied by deputies and reserves from the Sheriff's Office to shop for gifts for family members and will receive a gift themselves. Deputies will convoy to Longview with their designated child and help them pick out gifts. Once they are all through shopping the kids and deputies will come back to the courthouse for a pizza lunch while volunteers with STARS wrap the gifts.

When asked which deputies at briefing would be interested in participating on their own time this weekend every one of them raised their hand including the Chief Civil Deputy, Undersheriff, and Sheriff.

This will be an exciting day for all, and a fantastic opportunity for kids to interact with law enforcement personnel in a positive light.
