(KSL News) -- Some local children were taken on quite a ride by police this morning.

Sirens rang out as some of the kids got a chance to ride in a police car. Santa, however, decided to take a helicopter to a K-Mart on Main Street. The cops helped the children shop for Christmas presents. One little boy showed us the ring he picked out for his mom.

Ronny Ortiz, Child Shopper: "My mom said to buy everyone stuff.” Reporter: “But you did your mom first, that's really nice."

Troy Denney, Dept. Public Safety: "I've got kids of my own and its a tremendous feeling to see these kids' excitement. A lot of them haven't been in the police car before so it's exciting to see what they say and do inside of it."

A spokesperson with the Cop a Shop program says many of these children would not really have a Christmas without this event. It is funded by donations from individuals and organizations.
