 The Kern County Sheriff's Office is hosting "Shop with a Cop" Saturday. 

The event provides a fun-filled day for a number of children with identified needs in Kern County.

The shopping experience hopes to fosters positive relationships with law enforcement and deters youth from choosing a life of crime or violence.

The participating children are identified by deputies through schools, churches, youth organizations, and sports teams. All Sheriff ranks and classifications will be participating.

On Saturday, uniformed deputies are assigned a child to take shopping.

The deputies volunteer their time and donate $100 to spend on a child. 

The event is taking place at the Walmart on Panama Lane.
