Each year the Town of Murphy Police Department and our local Wal-Mart team up together to participate in the annual Shop with a Cop Program, benefiting local area children and families. The establishment of this program began in December of 2004, after the Murphy Police Department received a special Holiday Grant from Walmart. Each year since the program has began it has grown to new numbers, with an outpour of community support from other businesses, organizations, and generous donations from individuals.
Murphy Police Officers get to share the wonderful joy of Christmas by escorting children to Walmart where they receive a gift card to purchase presents for themselves; but oftentimes prove that the children purchase gifts for their families.
