Laramie County kids shop with cops

By  | 

The Wyoming Highway Patrol, the Laramie County Sheriff's Office, and the Cheyenne Police Department joined forces this year for the Cheyenne area "Shop With A Cop" event.

32 elementary students from the Laramie County School Districts were picked up from their respective schools by an officer and taken to the south Cheyenne Walmart at 580 Livingston Avenue (Campstool and College) by patrol vehicle.

Each student got to shop with an officer and spend $100 + as they wish.

The monetary donation for this event is being provided by the generous donations from Troopers, school faculty, businesses and members of our community. Contributions will continue to be taken online at the Wyoming Highway Patrol Association Paypal site: http://bit.ly/2gqc1My or the can be mailed to the Wyoming Highway Patrol Association, P. O. Box 47, Kaycee, WY 82639.

The intent with this event is to provide these children with a little merrier holiday season as well as providing them with a positive experience with law enforcement. Any additional funds received above and beyond what is needed for the Shop with a Cop event, will go to providing school lunches for children in need throughout Laramie County.
