Valdosta - Police in Valdosta are gearing up for their fourth annual Shop With A Cop and say this year is going to be bigger and better than ever.

Officers from Valdosta, Remerton, Lowndes County, and Moody Air Force Base will be taking 33 kids shopping for Christmas gifts Friday night.

Each child will have 70 dollars to buy something on their wish list.

Officers say the kids always have fun, but it's an event the officers look forward to all year. 

"This is an enjoyable time for the kids and adults alike. I like to tell most people if you look at the officers faces, you'll see a bigger smile than on the kids," says Vern Williams, coordinator of the program.

Shop With A Cop will take place at 6:30 PM at the Wal-Mart off Inner Perimeter Road.

They'll have a pizza party for the kids once they've bought their gifts.
