Members of the Pioneer Saddle Club made a $250 donation to the recent Shop With a Cop event. On hand to receive the check were several officers with the West Plains Police Department and an agent with the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Front row, from left: officers Kevin White and Brad Jones, Detective Brandon Romans, club members McKinley Franks, Shaina Cook, Baylor Hale, Grayson Hale, MDC Agent Matt Franks and Officer Chris Barrett.

This year’s Shop With a Cop event served 164 children, each given a $100 spending allowance to buy holiday gifts, organized locally by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 43. Donations are taken year round and may be made at the West Plains Police Department, 1912 Holiday Lane.
