Troopers Participate in “Shop with a Cop” program
During the Christmas holiday Troopers Anthony Lee, Emmitt Paige, Ted Menner and Auxiliary Trooper Ralph Etienne participated in the Hallandale Beach Police Departments “Shop with a Cop” program. The officers volunteered their time to promote a positive relationship between the community and law enforcement.
The morning began with the children meeting the officers for breakfast at a local restaurant. After breakfast the group went to Wal-Mart where each child could spend $100 on gifts for themselves and/or their family. The money was donated by several local sponsors.
This was the first year that the Florida Highway Patrol participated in the event and Trooper Tony Lee stated that “it was a great opportunity for kids less fortunate to get some items they wanted for the holidays.”
