What is Santa Cops?
The Santa Cops program is a partnership between the Bedford Police Department and Christmas Providers to help fulfill the Christmas wishes of children and families affected by unfortunate circumstances. Bedford Police Department officers, civilian staff, and Bedford Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association will deliver clothes and toys to Bedford-area children that might have otherwise not received gifts for Christmas.
How can you help with Santa Cops?
A Santa Cops wish tree will be set up in the Front Lobby and Detention Facility of the Bedford Police Department starting Friday, November 15, 2019. You can select a tag from the tree, purchase the item, and return it, unwrapped, to the Bedford Police Department by Monday, December 16, 2019. Santa Cops also accepts cash donations, which will go towards the family’s holiday meal.
Santa Cops is funded entirely by local donations! Santa Cops would be non-existent without the extreme generosity of the people and businesses of this great community. The Bedford Police Department is proud to partner with our citizens to make Christmas wishes come true for everyone.
The children in the Santa Cops program are provided to the Bedford Police Department by Christmas Providers and must live within HEB or Birdville ISD.
