Dec. 20 ‘Shop With a Cop’ in Brown County

By Martha B. Jacob –

Brown County Shop with a Cop is coming up quickly and according to Ripley Police Chief Joel Barnett, his department would appreciate any support from the community he can get for the program.
“Just by making a small cash donation to this Shop With a Cop program, residents can help send a child to a fun-filled day with a cop,” Chief Barnett said.
“The entire day this year, which will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 20, will begin with a great breakfast at the Country Inn in Mt. Orab. Each law officer will be paired with a child from the community that might not have a great Christmas.”
Barnett added that after leaving the restaurant the kids get to use the lights and sirens on the vehicle during their ride to Hillsboro where the kids are treated to a movie, lunch and a shopping spree at the Hillsboro Walmart.
“We have $500 available through donations for the kids to spend on their parents, siblings and themselves,” Barnett said with a smile. “It’s a real treat for all the law enforcement officers to be a part of this Shop With a Cop program. Most of these children don’t have much and are less fortunate than many.”
When the procession of vehicles arrives back in Mt. Orab they will go to Western Brown where the gifts will all be wrapped. The kids will then have their dinner before the day ends.
Many friendships are formed during the special day which will be remembered by all.
Contributions can still be made at any police department or the sheriff’s department in Brown County. The more money that gets raised, the more children in need that can be added to the event.
