The Vandalia Police Department takes part in the “Shop With a Cop” program in Mexico.

Vandalia Police Chief Christopher Hammann and Corporal Logan Benjamin were among many officers from the area taking part in the “Shop With a Cop” program last Friday evening at the Wal-Mart in Mexico, Mo. The program included law enforcement personnel shopping with area children on Saturday morning as well.
Each child received a $100 gift card from Wal-Mart and the officers helped the children spend the money paying for either gifts for themselves or family members. Officers from the Audrain County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Conservation Department, as well as the VPD helped more than 50 kids with their shopping.
