Movie it is!Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol’s Troop L, out of Davie, Fla., participated in a Dec. 17 Shop with a Cop program, sponsored by the Police Athletic League and the Hallandale Beach Police Department. The event took place at a Hallandale Beach Wal-Mart. More than 100 children took advantage of the opportunity to shop with a law enforcement officer, and each youngster had a $100 gift card, provided by the Police Athletic League, to purchase gifts. Troopers volunteered their time for the program to promote a positive relationship between the community and law enforcement.

So much to choose from!This was the third year the Florida Highway Patrol participated in the event. It was a huge success, and all the troopers involved said they look forward to participating in future events.
