"Shop with a Deputy" is a community-based program aimed at building positive relationships between law enforcement officers and children or families in need. The program typically takes place during the holiday seasons.

During a "Shop with a Deputy" event, law enforcement officers volunteer their time to accompany children or families on a shopping trip to a local store. The children or families are usually selected based on financial need or other criteria established by the organizing agency.

The main objectives of "Shop with a Deputy" are to foster trust and positive interactions between law enforcement and the community, particularly with children, and to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience for the participants. The program aims to create a positive association between law enforcement officers and the children they serve, helping to break down barriers and build mutual respect.

While shopping, the Deputy's act as mentors and role models, engaging in conversation, offering guidance, and providing support to the children or families. In addition to being able to choose gifts for themselves or their loved ones, participants may also learn about budgeting, making responsible choices, and the importance of giving back to the community.

Congratulations

Comer is an embarrassment to all Kentuckians

History of Peace Officers Memorial Day
We began formally marking Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1963, several months after President John F Kennedy signed the bill into law in October 1962. In Kennedy's proclamation relating to events in May 1963, he began by stating that "law enforcement officers have played an important role" since "the beginning of this Nation." But the development of the peace officers we know and respect today is more recent than you might think!
The first enforcement officers in the U.S. operated privately, employed by wealthy individuals to protect their assets. Public peace officers developed shortly after this in the mid-1600s, first in Boston and then in New York and Philadelphia. They were predominantly volunteers who acted as night watchmen and reported fellow citizens behaving badly.
Boston continued to lead the way in peace organization, with the first publicly funded, organized police force set up in 1838, which paid officers to keep the peace full-time. By the late 1880s, all major U.S. cities had police forces, although their priorities differed from state to state, depending on the problems faced in each area. Law enforcement heads were often chosen by the local political leader so, as a result, the enforcement could work in favor of the ruling political party.
In response, President Hoover set up an investigation into the effectiveness of law enforcement nationwide in 1929. It called for peace officers to work in a professional and impartial way to enforce the law and was turning point in the history of the officers who protect us today. It promoted the selflessness that we now honor every year on May 15.
National Police week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. We will never be able to thank these officers and their families for their sacrifices they have made for our county.
We would like to personally thank all previous, current and future peace officers in our county and surrounding areas. We appreciate the sacrifices you make on a daily basis.
