RHINELANDER - A group of Rhinelander kids kept some local officers busy as they sped through the aisles at a nearby department store, shopping for the holidays.
"I'm just happy they get to see law enforcement and [the] fire department in a positive light," said Rhinelander Police Officer Chad Brown.
"That's all I care about."
Officer Brown started "Shop With a Cop" in Rhinelander eight years ago.
He wanted to show kids that they always had support, not just when something was going wrong.
"It's amazing to us to interact with people when it's not a time of crisis," said Brown.
Bright and early Saturday morning, 17 kids boarded a bus.
The kids got a tour of the police department and had breakfast with officers to get energy for a day of holiday shopping.
"It's fun to be able to joke around and laugh because we don't get that every day," said Brown.
8- year- old Dariyon Catchings waited for this day, ever since his brother got chosen for "Shop With a Cop" last year.
