Annual 'Shop with a Sheriff' event a holiday tradition
BATAVIA – Some very special people went on a holiday shopping spree Wednesday at the Batavia Walmart, where they were given the deluxe treatment from Kane County sheriff’s deputies.
With so many smiling faces and heartfelt hugs, it was difficult to determine who was having more fun, the shoppers or the law enforcement officers, at the “Shop with a Sheriff” event.
“I love this,” Deputy Bill Gatske said. “It’s a chance for us to show that we are not big scary people and that we do have hearts.”
