Tulsa police officers took part in the annual Shop with a Cop event on Saturday morning in one of the department's favorite events of the year.
Several dozen officers took part in the event this year at Walmart near Admiral and Memorial, benefitting students from Celia Clinton Elementary.
Every year since 2002, the Rotary Club of Tulsa hosts the annual outreach event to at-risk Tulsa youth who may have only negative impressions of police officers.
On a Saturday morning during the holiday season, volunteer Rotarians and Officers meet with the children in a store and go over their wish list of presents for their parents and siblings.
While the Officer and child wander the aisles shopping for family members, a Rotarian secretly shops for the child.
The event is funded by the Rotary Club and the Tulsa FOP.
