Clarksville Police Department brings Christmas Cheer to 120 local kids

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – On Saturday, December 14th, 2013, at 8:00am, the Clarksville Police Union and FOP’s, “Shop with a Cop” was a great success. Officers took over 120 local children, from all over Montgomery County, shopping. Each child spent $100.00 on clothes and toys.

The children were nominated by 18 Montgomery County Elementary school guidance counselors, Clarksville Police Department employees, and Montgomery County citizens. Every effort was made to find children in need, and make sure they received gifts for Christmas.

Tyler Barrett- feels the event helps put our police officers in a positive light in the children’s eyes. The children hear talk from adults about the enforcement side of a police officer’s job rather than the caring softer side.

Speaking on behalf of the officers who attended, the officers received the gift of giving this Saturday. The many excited children seemed to take over the Sango Wal-Mart. We had many citizens come up to our officers getting really emotional after seeing the event first hand.

Officer Hall- Speaking, also, on behalf of the officers who attended, “Detective Tyler Barrett, once again, did an amazing job getting this event together. Putting this event together took a lot of time and effort and Detective Barrett does it with a smile on his face. So, thank you Tyler for all your hard work!”

The event is funded by donations given by businesses, civic groups, and citizens inside Montgomery County.  We would like to thank all who gave and made this event possible.
