PRESCOTT VALLEY- It's time for your yearly heads-up: Saturday, Dec. 12 dozens of area police officers will participate in the annual Shop with a Cop Christmas program for children.
That means many police cars with lights and sirens traveling from the Prescott Valley Event Center to the Walmart store on Highway 69 at about 7:30 a.m. and returning at 11:30 a.m.
Those cars will be carrying about 90 excited at-risk kids, seven-to-12-years-old, to meet Santa Claus, go Christmas shopping, and have breakfast with an officer.
Police suggest avoiding Highway 69 during those times as traffic becomes heavy around the motorcade.
