LOCKPORT, N.Y. - The 7th annual Shop with a Cop event was held Saturday, at the Walmart on South Transit Road in Lockport.

The event, partnered with the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and Walmart, pairs children up with deputies to shop for gifts for themselves and/or family members.

After shopping, the children were treated to lunch, which was provided by Walmart.

“This event is all about building relationships with the children and letting them know we are here for them," said Niagara County Sheriff, James Voutour.

The Sheriff’s Office received a community grant from the Walmart Foundation, which allows for the purchase of gift cards for the children to use while they shop.
