Each year, in December, the Roanoke Police Department organizes a Santa Cops event.
Through a partnership with the Roanoke Food Pantry, the Santa Cops program fulfills the Christmas wishes of underprivileged children within Northwest ISD. Roanoke Police Department officers, civilian staff and Roanoke Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association volunteers deliver clothes and toys to Roanoke area children that might have otherwise not received gifts for Christmas.
Santa Cops is funded entirely by local donations. It is organized and implemented by Roanoke Police Officers, their families and community volunteers. Santa Cops would be non-existent without the extreme generosity of the people and businesses of this great community!
