The Clarksville Police Union and FOP’s “Shop with a Cop” took over 120 local children from all over Montgomery County on a shopping spree on Saturday. Each child spent $100 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 said 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.
Officer Hall, speaking 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.
