Officers with York Area Regional Police Department in York County teamed up with Target on Sunday for a good cause. Three officers from the department took children shopping at the East York Target store for ‘Shop with a Cop.’

The Target store gave the officers each an $80 gift card to help the kids buy holiday presents.

“It’s very nice to be able to be out and able to relax and let them see that there’s people beneath the uniform, and hang out and get to know some of the folks in our community on a different level,” says Cpl. Keith Dyke.

This is the first year York Area Regional has taken part in the event.
