ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A group of Albuquerque police officers make the holiday season a little more special for some local kids in need.


106 of those kids participated in Shop with a Cop Sunday morning, where they had the opportunity to pick out some special holiday gifts after being treated with $100 Walmart gift cards.

It's something the police and kids both say meant the world to them.

"It's a blessing that we can just inspire these little kids, make their wish come true (and) make them happy," said Angelo Lovato, who works to solve auto theft crimes at APD.

The fun didn't stop at Walmart; the kids also spent the afternoon playing games at Main Event.
