Members of College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Law Enforcement program joined local law enforcement Saturday, Dec. 12, to participate in the Canyon County Shop with a Cop. This year’s event, hosted at the Walmart near the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, provided nearly 70 local children in need an opportunity to shop for gifts for their families.

CWI Law Enforcement students, participating for the fifth year, had a great time visiting with the kids and local law enforcement while helping wrap gifts.

"In these strange times, it was nice to put away the uncertainty for a few hours and be able to make kids smile," said Law Enforcement student, Carissa Nelson. "It was an honor to be apart of tons of groups that want to make a difference and spread joy in what should be a wonderful time of year."

To top the day off, Santa dropped in, via Zoom, from the North Pole.
