The officers of the Colonial Regional Police Force were spreading a little Christmas cheer to some kids Saturday.

The group held its annual Shop with Cops event.

Officers picked up 10 families from their homes early in the morning, and took them out for a holiday shopping spree.

Volunteers also joined the force to help wrap gifts for the kids.
