Christmas shopping continued today at the Minot Target today and it happened in pairs.
The Minot Police Department held its Christmas event "Cops and Kids", where about 100 kids across Minot were selected to pick out some Christmas presents with local law enforcement.
(Officer Tim Gates and Sgt. Paul Burns)"This is a way to make kids' Christmas special. Another big thing is a lot of times children see police officers as scary people. They see us go into some homes they watch too many cop shows. This way they get to see us in a positive light."
The Police Department raised about $24,000 to make to event possible.
