 (ABC 6 News) -- Shopping for the perfect holiday gift is a job many of us know all too well. But for fifty kids in the Rochester area, there is no longer a need to worry.

They spent their day shopping with local law enforcement this afternoon. It's part of the Shop with a Cop Program at WalMart in North Rochester.

Forty cops were paired up with kids to go on a hundred dollar shopping spree. The kids got to pick out presents for their families and also build a positive relationship with the officers.

Kids also got the chance to tour squad cars and eat with the officers.

This is the tenth year the Rochester Police Athletic League has held the event.
