Sheriff and Local Cops Take 80 Kids

The Clay County Sheriff’s Department and the Manchester City Police Department joined forces this year to take 80 kids shopping at Walmart in Manchester Friday.


The annual “Shop with a Sheriff” Program allowed for 84 kids to go on $100 shopping sprees with Sheriff’s Deputies, City Police Officers, and Kentucky State Police Officers.


The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the city have hosted fundraisers through out the year to fund the program, along with gathering donations from local people and businesses.


“We would like to thank all the businesses and individuals that have donated to Shop with a Sheriff Program. We appreciate their generosity, as we know they get hit up all year long, and we know that without the businesses that help us, we couldn’t make this happen,” said Sheriff Kevin Johnson. “They always come through for us at the end of the year.”

“The message is simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” said Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) Director Bill Bell.  “As easy as that sounds, unfortunately many drivers still choose to jeopardize their safety and the safety of others on our roads by getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.”
