COPS 4 KIDS DAY EVENT SUCCESSFUL

Chief Robertson and Officer Melton along with local children

WESTERN KY (10/23/16) -On Saturday, October 23, the Central City Police Department held a fundraising event in downtown Central City.

Reporters spoke with Central City Police Chief Brent Roberson concerning the Cops 4 Kids fundraising event. This event is held each year in an attempt to raise funds for the annual Christmas Shop with a Cop program, wherein local children whose families are undergoing financial hardships can do Christmas shopping with Central City Police Officers.

Chief Roberson informed reporters that this years’ fundraiser brought in approximately 1600 dollars for the program.

Local citizens that would like to help provide further funds for local children whose parents might not be able to afford Christmas this year donations can still be made to the program. If you would like to help, donations will be accepted at the Central City Police Department or at the Central City Elementary School Resource Center.
