(Hickory, Ky.) - On Tuesday, December 10, 2013 the Kentucky State Police Professional Association (KSPPA) District 1conducted its annual "Shop with a Trooper" (S.W.AT.) program. This program is designed to assist children in need during Christmas season.
One Hundred and four children, their families, and one hundred and ten volunteers from KSP Troopers, KSP CVE Officers, KSP dispatchers, KSP family members, McCracken County Sheriff's Department, Graves County Sheriff's Department, Mayfield City Police Department, Mayfield City Council, Northside Baptist Christian School, Northside Baptist Church, His House, Carlisle and Ballard County Family Resource Centers, Mid Continent University, and Jackson Purchase Medical Center met at Northside Baptist Church in Mayfield. Pizza was provided to everyone courtesy of Papa John's Lone Oak store.
After dinner, the volunteers assisted the children in their shopping at the Wal-Mart in Mayfield. Their shopping lists consisted of several items including coats, pants, shirts, shoes, hats, gloves, and toys.
KSPPA District 1 would like to thank all private and corporate donors which made the event possible. With the help of these generous individuals, 2013 proved to be the largest S.W.A.T. event ever in post 1 history.
