An awesome article and video about this year's Shop With a Cop program in Cody!

On Monday, December 11, 2017, the Cody Police Department participated in the Shop With a Cop event at the Cody Walmart. Officers from the Cody Police Department picked up their assigned child from his/her school or home and took them to Walmart, where they were met by members of the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Park County Sheriff’s Department, Powell Police Department, Bighorn County Sheriff’s Department, Lovell Police Department, and other boys and girls from Park and Big Horn Counties. A grant from Walmart provided each child with a little over $100 to purchase gifts for whomever they wanted to. Most of the kids purchased gifts for their families and friends before shopping for themselves. Walmart assigned a Sales Associate to each officer-child pair to assist them with price checking and locating items in the store. In addition to the grant money, Walmart let the children select a box of their favorite breakfast cereal as well as provided them with a new backpack and a goodie bag. When the children were done shopping we all returned to the Park County Law Enforcement Center, where they wrapped the gifts that they purchased. Darrin Whalen and Papa Murphy’s donated pizzas for the children and officers to eat while they wrapped their gifts. Some of the officers' families and administration came in to assist with the gift wrapping. The Cody Police Department would like to thank the Cody Walmart and Papa Murphy’s for graciously supporting this event. We would also like to thank Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper Rodney Miears for including our department in this event the last couple of years, as well as the hard work Trooper Miears did in organizing this year’s great event. This year we were able to take 20 children shopping during the event.

These keys were found at 29th and Sheridan Avenue on Thursday, December 7 at around 1:00 PM. If they being to you, please contact CSO Morris at 527-8700.
