According to the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office, everyone checked out at the same register.

This community event started in 2012 when the sheriff’s office raised money, purchased toys and gave them to the parents of children in need.

“Shop with a Cop” is following that path by bringing deputies together with children in the community for a positive purpose.
