The Bossier City Police Department is going to take kids on a Christmas shopping

Shreveport, LA – According to the statement, the Bossier City Police Local 645 and the Bossier Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #39 are assisting the kids with their holiday shopping as part of their annual Shop with a Cop program.

This amazing event will start 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18 at the Walmart Super Center on 2536 Airline Dr.

The police officers will accompany the children as they shop for Christmas gifts with funds raised locally over the past year by members of Local 645 and the Bossier FOP chapter.
