In the Holiday Spirit
Metropolitan Division’s SWAT personnel are active participants along with the Orthopaedic Hospital in preparation for the “Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation Annual Holiday Toy Drive,” that culminates with a parade that includes a visit by Santa Claus.
Officers from “B”, “C” and “K9” Platoons participated in toy giveaways by selecting certain schools and purchasing toys for the students. Each officer selected two children's names and personally purchased toys for the children. The officers then made the special deliveries along with Santa.
