If you were at the Mall at Greece Ridge Tuesday, you may have seen a lot of Rochester Police officers inside. 

They were helping kids do some Christmas shopping. This is the Christmas "Shop with a Cop" Event, put on by the Police Activities League.

Officers say it's a chance for kids and officers to get to know one another better and for the Rochester Police Department to spread some Christmas cheer.

Sgt. Justin Collins, Rochester Police Department, said, "Kids get to work with cops, see cops in a different light. The looks and the surprise and the questions, it's a win for everybody."

The Police Activities League has held other "Shop with a Cop" events this year as well as things like Madden Tournaments.
