Each year hundreds of children are treated to a free shopping spree called "Shop With a Cop" - a service of the St. Francois County Sheriff's Department via St. Francois County Sheriff's Association Shop with a Cop organization. Officers said they choose kids who are less fortunate, and are good kids. Each child received approximately $100 to spend on gifts. "She's really artistic", her mother Patrice Partlow said.
Once each child picked their gifts to give, they brought them back to the community center to wrap them with the troopers.
