The citizens of Sulphur have a lot of pride in their community and in their Police Department. This is just one example of them coming together and making Christmas special for those who need a little help. According to KPLC it was the first ever "Shop with a Cop" day yesterday. Kids were escorted by Sulphur Police Department personnel while they picked out a toy. The kids each had a $40 gift certificate and their parents were given a sixty dollar gift certificate to shop at Walmart. The funds were provided by donations from the citizens of Sulphur.
