Bringing smiles and cheer to area children, DRBA police officers again volunteered their time to participate in the second annual “Shop with a Cop” event.  Partnering with Target (Wilmington), Children and Families First, and Walmart (Sussex) to provide children with gifts this Christmas, the first outing took place on Sunday, December 12, 2021. Officers met the children and their families at the Prices Corner Target in Wilmington for a shopping spree.
