Shop with a cop

AMERICUS — The Americus Police Department shopped for Christmas with 20  local children who are in foster care.
The money was donated by local businesses and churches.
The police officers and the kids met at Roman Oven for dinner on Dec. 20. The restaurant donated the meals.
After dinner, the officers took the kids to Walmart where the kids were paired with officers from APD and Georgia Southwestern State University Police and given a gift card.

Americus Police Sgt. Eddie Davis talks with two of the kids about what they want to put in the shopping cart next.
