CROWLEY, La. - Crowley Police are giving back during the holiday season with their annual Shop with a Cop day.

Some children and officers met at the city's Walmart to shop for Christmas gifts together.

The kids received cash to shop with an officer for their families. It's a way to make sure everyone can have a Merry Christmas no matter their financial means.

"I'm so humbled each day when I look at each of these officers," said Chief Jimmy Broussard. "And what they do for our community, but today makes me even more humble because they are choosing of their own free time to come here and shop with these kids."
