The Sevierville Police Department Community Resource Unit and other department members have scheduled the annual Shop With a Cop event for Tuesday, December 17. With assistance from local school administrators and School Resource Officers, the SPD has selected ten children to take shopping for Christmas presents, have lunch and spend time with officers. These children would likely receive few, if any, Christmas presents without this program.
SPD officers are asking for donations from the public to help pay for the shopping trip on December 17. A Shop With SWAT bank account has been established at Citizens National Bank (CNB) to receive donations. Residents may donate at any CNB in Sevier County. Any unused money that is collected will remain in the account to be used next Christmas. For additional information, please contact Community Resource Sergeant Michael Maddron at 865-868-1742.
