The department is asking for donations from the community in any amount. They will take as many kids as they can with the funding they receive. This entire program is funded by donations from businesses and individuals.
Last year they had Whitley County Sheriff Deputies, State Police officers, Dispatchers, Jailers, Probation and their families all helping with the program. It’s good for the kids to see law enforcement in a good light. They still are in need help with donations.
Donations can be sent to 101 W. Market St., Columbia City, IN 46725 (make checks out to the Whitley County Sheriff Reserve), and put Shop-With-Sheriff on the memo line.
