Tis' the be generous

What makes the Holiday's great? Well, other than getting to eat all the yummy food around the office? The real answer you ask, the men and women in law enforcement and the generosity they have toward their community. What follows are just a few of the photos and stories from some of our members. We couldn't be prouder! This folks, is what the spirit of giving is all about!

This is from Coronado Police Department involvement in our local Shop with a Cop event.  Law enforcement in San Diego County raise funds throughout the year and get community support to provide a joyful holiday to 300 youth.  The day starts with breakfast at Sea World, a special show at Sea World, then a code-3 procession to a local Target store where youth, paired with officers go on a $100 shopping spree (usually more, with the difference paid out of the officer’s pocket).

Soledad PD, Salinas Valley State Prison and Correctional Training Facility, local businesses, local high school students and the Lion's Club hosted the 4th Annual "Cops Giving Tree" . Over 500 children and their families are served food by law enforcement personnel.  After dinner has been served, the designated children and their families are brought up onto the stage (one family at a time) and given gifts from Santa Clause. They then have the opportunity to take a photograph with Santa Clause before being escorted off of the stage where each family is given one new bicycle and helmet for one of the children. 


Livingston PD was able to provide 50 bicycles and over 1000 presents to low income families in Livingston. In addition, Santa Claus (Officer Anthony Vieira) visited the senior center and passed out gifts to the seniors as well. 





The Hayward Police Department hosted its annual COPS for Kids’ Holiday Toy Giveaway on Saturday, December 14th at the police department. For over 20 years the Hayward Police Department has been making the holidays brighter for less fortunate families in Hayward with a gift of toys. Police staff and community volunteers spread happiness and holiday joy to more than 100 families in the Hayward community! Our local Girl Scout troop provided hot chocolate to all families as well as caroling

On December 11, 2013 the Fremont PD held the 10th Anniversary of Shot with a Cop Event. This year 20 children between the ages of 6-8 years old have been selected by the City of Fremont Human Services Department to participate.  The children began their experience by being chauffeured from school to the Target store by a Fremont Police Officer driving a patrol car disguised as a reindeer.  Once they arrived at Target, volunteers greeted the teams and they indulged in fun activities, face painting and arts and crafts.  Throughout the morning kids also had the opportunity to meet a police canine, sit on a police Harley motorcycle and even meet Santa if they choose.
