Shop With a Hero Program

As the year draws to an end, we at the Paris Police Department and Bourbon Co Sheriff’s Office are preparing for the upcoming holidays and events for the community. It is a time for being with loved ones, celebrating joyful moments, and creating fond memories with those you hold dear. As public servants, we are aware of the everyday struggles of our citizens. It is important to us that we have the opportunity to give back to the community that we serve.

This year, both the Paris Police Department and Bourbon County Sheriff’s Department will once again partner together to help children who are less fortunate. Shop with A Cop is a program designed to purchase toys and clothing for children in need, in hopes of creating the best Christmas memories possible. Each child will be allotted money divided up evenly amongst the group, and have the opportunity to shop with a police officer or sheriff’s deputy at the Paris Wal-Mart to select the toys that they desire. We have partnered with Paris and Bourbon County Schools to select the children who are most in need of this program.

Working alongside our Citizens Police Academy Alumni, we are attempting to gather funds to make this possible. With your donation of any amount, you can help the selected children have a great holiday season. 

If you are able to donate to this program, please make the check out to Citizens Police Academy Alumni, and add Shop with A Cop to the memo line. You may also donate online through GoFundMe. Thank you for your kind generosity and assistance in helping local law enforcement provide kids with a great Christmas.

Best Wishes,
Paris Police Department/Bourbon County Sheriff
