SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Salt Lake City police officers, as well as police departments around the state, staged their annual "Shop with a Cop" event.

For over 25 years the Salt Lake Police Association has taken the lead in organizing the annual holiday tradition for law enforcement across the Salt Lake Valley.

This year 115 officers from a dozen agencies will volunteer their time to help 115 children with their Christmas shopping.

Several viewers called the Fox 13 newsroom this morning to see what all the commotion was about as several police vehicles formed a procession ahead of the event, escorting Santa Claus.
