GREENCASTLE -- For more than a decade, the Putnam County Fraternal Order of Police's Shop With A Cop has been helping children get the necessary supplies and clothing to start the school year right. This year 30 students, chosen by their school, shopped with a cop.

President of FOP Jerrod Baugh said each year the program grows and it's great opportunity to see the kids warm up to the officers by the end of the shopping experience.

Officers from Greencastle Police Department, Cloverdale Police Department, Indiana State Excise Police, Indiana State Police and Morgan County Sheriff's Department gave their morning to a good cause.
