The annual Santa Cop event for local families was held Dec. 16th at the city’s Community Center. More than 150 children were picked by schools, area churches and the Tustin Family and Youth Center to participate in the event.
Kids tried their hand at bingo and the bean bag throw to win tickets and claim holiday-themed prizes and the families were treated to a traditional holiday turkey dinner and dessert. Police and city employees donated hundreds of gifts that were stuffed into large bags and passed out to each family by Chief Celano and Capt. Steve Lewis to close the evening.
