KENNETT, MO (KFVS) -

Captain Tim Trowbridge and Patrolman Christopher Hill of the Kennett Police Department went to shopping on Tuesday, Dec.16.

This wasn't any ordinary or regular shopping trip, though.

They were there to buy toys for a program called Outreach for Kids.

Officers will be taking these toys and placing them inside their patrol cars and when Kennett officers are answering calls throughout the day, making traffic stops or even just simply talking with members of the community, they plan on passing out the toys to children.

The department said it is participating in this program simply just to be able to give back to the community, and the goal is to continue bringing the community and the police department together.

Steve Foster, Walmart and Mayor Bob Hancock all helped to support this cause.
