Kids from 20 families in Fremont have been selected to take part in a holiday "Shop with a Cop" event from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Fremont Human Services Department has selected 20 kids between the ages of 6 and 8 who will drive to a Target store with a police officer to shop for family members.

A Santa's helper at Target will assist with some of the shopping and wrapping gifts.

Fremont police will also set up a mobile command center in the Target parking lot with police canines, patrol motorcycles and a visit from Santa Claus.

Lunch at an Outback restaurant will help round out the day and brighten the holiday experience for the kids and their families.
