For more than 30 years, Santa Cops has delivered Christmas toys to Larimer County children in need.
Last year, the nonprofit delivered gifts to more than 2,400 children. This year they are preparing for a bigger holiday season.
That takes a lot of partners, which is why Santa Cops includes representatives from Colorado State Patrol, Fort Collins Police Services, Loveland Police Department, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Timnath Police Department, Colorado State University Police Department and the District Attorney’s Office.
Santa Cops’ goal is to enhance the relationship between children and law enforcement during the holiday season but also throughout the year. Members of participating agencies deliver the gifts in uniform from patrol vehicles.
To receive gifts, parents or legal guardians must sign up. To sign up, you will need to provide valid identification, a birth certificate for each child and a utility bill to provide a current address and ensure accuracy for the delivery of toys.
