ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN) — Twice a year the Enterprise Police Department hosts “Shop With a Cop” where local youth will get the chance to spend a day with a police officer.
Joined by community partners, on August 4th five select kids will join up with an Enterprise police officer for a day of shopping, eating, bowling and other fun activities.
The goal is to show the community and more specifically the kids that police are there to be a friend, a helping hand.
Local business owner and founder of the idea, Travis Parker joined Wake Up Wiregrass to shed light on the day that brings much joy to the officers involved.
Being just weeks away, Parker and EPD are also accepting donations in a monetary fashion or gift cards that will go towards the day of shopping.
