Christmas is just around the corner and the 2015 Shop with a Cop/Firefighter is being organized for this year. Last year the program assisted over 60 students in the county, and involved first responders from the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Department, Castle Rock Police, Longview Police, Kelso Police, Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue, and the Dept. of Corrections. This year Kelso Police will also be sponsoring a Shop with a Cop at Target. Woodland and Kalama Police are also sponsoring Shop with a Cop events in their local areas.
