BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- Bryan County families in need are invited to take part in this year's Shop with a Cop.
On December 19th officers with the Durant and Calera Police Departments, OHP troopers and Bryan County deputies will take at least 10 families shopping at the Durant Walmart.
Amber Thomas, with Durant Police, says the event is about more than just giving back to the community.
She says it's a chance to bond with residents.
Thomas said, "We make a connection with them. They know that they can trust us and then when they need help they feel secure in calling us,"
If you know of a family in need you're asked to send a letter to the Durant Police Department that includes their circumstance, names, ages and contact information.
If you would like to donate to this cause money will be accepted at Shamrock Bank in Durant.
