More than 50 kids had a chance to do some holiday shopping with police officers in Cleveland Tuesday.

The Cleveland Division of Police raised money all year for the Shop With a Cop program. Officers chose children who had been victims of or witnesses to crime to spend an evening shopping at Target at Steelyard Commons.

"It means everything. For Cleveland to give back," said Lateasa Byrd.
