Law enforcement in Door and Kewaunee County are preparing to make the holiday season a little bit brighter for area children. Both counties sponsor Chop and Shop with a Cop programs next Saturday, pairing a child with a member of the sheriff’s department or police department for the day as they cut down a tree and do Christmas shopping for their family. Algoma Police Officer Tyler Tuttle has been involved with the program for nine years, beginning as a student volunteer from Luxemburg-Casco High School. Tuttle says it is an experience he looks forward to every year.
Both Door County and Kewaunee County programs accept donations of gift wrapping supplies and money to help make the day a little more special for the participating children.
