CLOVIS (KSMX) – The Clovis Police Department announced that with the Christmas Holiday upon us, the department is gearing up for their annual Cops and Kids event. Multiple assisting agencies are taking part in the annual function that takes place just before Christmas and gives local children an opportunity to go shopping with an officer or first responder. The children selected, aged three to thirteen, are under-privileged kids that might not have a chance at receiving gifts unless help is received. The event could not occur without donations from individuals and local businesses, in addition to fundraisers. The Clovis Police Department, along with other area law enforcement, will be accepting donations as tips when they team up with Leal’s Restaurant staff on Prince this evening from 5:00 pm -9:00 pm. Donations will be accepted during the event as well as anytime to the Clovis Police Department at 300 N Connelly.
