Milton Police, Fire take part in Shop With A Cop.

Milton Police Chief Harrell and a new friend.


Milton’s police officers and firefighters joined Dec. 14 their Alpharetta peers for the 12th annual Police Athletics and Activities League (PAL) Shop With A Cop event at the Walmart on Ga. 9 and Windward Parkway in Milton.

As in previous years, the officers and firefighters helped the children -- recommended to PAL organizers by local schools and volunteers -- shop for holiday gifts. Each child was given $100, and Walmart donated $2,500 to help cover the cost, the remainder of which was made up of personal and corporate donations.

This year, 106 children participated, more than ever before. They were joined by an estimated 55 police officers, firefighters and community volunteers.

Many thanks to the Milton Fire and Police departments.
