225 children participate in this year’s Shop with a Cop

A special day for officers, too



Among the morning shoppers were brothers Mason and Joshua Nantz.  Accompanied by Deputy Gilbert Accardio, the Nantz brothers excitedly browsed the clothes department, trying to decide what they wanted the most.

“I got all I wanted this year,” said Mason, 7, as he held up a pair of blue gloves. 

Getting his Christmas wish of having a warm pair of gloves didn’t stop Mason’s face from lighting up when he, his brother and Accardio moved on to the toy section.

Mason and Joshua, 10, picked out toys and, having spent all their money, went to checkout.

“I love Shop with a Cop,” Joshua said while waiting in line.  “It’s so much fun. You get to buy a lot of cool stuff and the cops are so nice. They arrest the bad guys.”

Along with many other children Saturday morning, as the brothers were leaving the store, they thanked the police officers and even shared a hug or two; a gesture that most of the officers present agreed made the day just that much more special.
