Great Fun at “Shop with a Cop”

Chief Steven Echternach and Officer Lori Vital represented Strasburg Borough PD on Saturday, December 8 during the “Shop with a Cop” event sponsored by Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Each was partnered with an officer from another Lancaster County department, given $100 gift cards, and paired with a child to be turned loose in the Lancaster East Walmart. There they all worked together to select gifts not only for the participating child, but often for the child’s family and friends as well. It’s a fun day for everyone, and provides a positive interaction between the police and the youngsters of the communities they serve–and there were cookies and cocoa!
