Kids in Hermantown were hitting up the stores on Wednesday night, and not just with mom and dad. They got a little assistance from the Hermantown Police Department.

Law enforcement came out in uniform for the 10th annual Shop with a Cop event. The event gave kids a chance to, not only to get gifts for their families, but also to hang out with some of the good guys in blue.

Deputy Chief Shawn Padden the students were given a gift card for Walmart as a partnership between Bernick's Pepsi and Walmart.

Padden said it gives kids a chance to go shopping for their families just like everybody else.

"You know it's always a pleasure. And... I'm not much of a shopper, but I'll tell you what, they tell me where they want to go and they are real troopers about it," Padden said.
