EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Christmas came early for some area kids.

The Eau Claire County Sheriff's Department's 21st "Kids N' Cops" event was held at Target in Eau Claire.

The program focuses on kids who've had some kind of contact with law enforcement in the last year.

Cops teamed up with the little tykes, and helped them get clothes, winter gear, and even a few toys!

Sergeant Mike Mayer says this shows the kids that police are here to help and not hurt them.

“I've been running it for 17 years and it's awesome. It's amazing to see the smiles on their faces, knowing that we're doing something for the children who are in need,” said Mayer.

40 full-time officers and deputies from every law enforcement agency in Eau Claire County volunteered their time for the event.
