Deputy Josh Cochran of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, talks with Sierra Grigsby, 8, bottom, during a pizza dinner at Madison Consolidated High School. Cochran and Sierra were partners for the annual Christmas with a Cop event in Madison. This year's event involved about 35 children who got to eat dinner with members of the Madison and Hanover police departments and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. After a visit from Santa, the children were taken to Walmart where they were able to spend $150 on clothing and other necessities as well as toys and other fun items.
