PRINCETON, Ky. (12/13/13) - On Thursday, December 12, 2013, the Kentucky State Police Professional Association (KSPPA) District 2 conducted its 17th annual “Shop with a Trooper” (S.W.A.T.) program. This program is designed to assist children in need during the Christmas season.  

Thirty-six children, their families, KSP troopers, KSP CVE officers, and KSP families met at the Area 2 Fire & Rescue Training Center in Princeton. Pizza was provided to everyone courtesy of the Princeton Wal-Mart. Drinks were donated by the KSPPA District 2. The Sonic Drive-In of Princeton treated everyone to ice cream.
 
After dinner, personnel from Post 2, and their families, assisted the children with their shopping at the Princeton Wal-Mart. The shopping lists consisted of several items including coats, pants, shirts, shoes, hats, gloves, and toys.
 
The Kentucky State Police would like to thank the following for making this year’s program such a success: Charbon Contracting LLC, Communications Workers of America Local 3312, Donovan Commercial Industries Inc., Allen Dixon (Store Manager Princeton Wal-Mart), Whitney Myers (Manager Princeton Sonic Drive-In), Kelly’s Towing, Tom Toler, and those who wished to remain anonymous.

Matt Jordan, Stacie Jordan, Joshua Jordan, Caleb Jordan, Jonah Jordan, Seth Jordan, Sgt. Nick Rice, Megan Rice, Sgt. Tim Sales, Sgt. Derek Smith, Lindsey Smith, Sgt. Charles White, Det.
