This weekend, some Douglas County kids got a little help with their shopping lists, thanks to local law enforcement.

The annual Shop With a Cop event took place on Saturday at Kmart.

Over 20 disadvantaged kids got their holiday shopping taken care of with a little help from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and the Roseburg, Myrtle Creek, Sutherlin and Winston police departments.

The children were paired up with a law enforcement official, or in some cases, even two. Then, the kids got to roam the store and pick out presents for their loved ones, with a little help from their personal shoppers.

Some kids came with detailed lists, while others just wandered around, trying to find something just right for their friends and family.

One of the young shoppers said this was her first year taking part in the program, and she loved every minute of it. “I think it’s really cool, because it’s, like, awesome,” said Chelcey Cousineau.
