The West Point (MS) Police Department has taken "shop with a cop" to another level, purchasing thousands of Halloween costumes with the intent to give them away to families who otherwise could not afford to outfit their kids for the annual tradition of Trick-or-Treating.

According to WTVA-TV, Chief Avery Cook said he is passionate about giving back to the community he serves, and this is just another way to engage citizens.

The department announced that interested individuals can visit the agency's headquarters during business hours to peruse the selection of costumes on offer.
