Operation Rudolph

They didn’t look like Santa. They didn’t arrive in a sleigh. But this time, when the patrol car entered the neighborhood, it was a good thing. Because this time, it was Officers with the Overland Park Police Department COPPS Unit and volunteers from the NAACP delivering food and gifts to 21 families in Overland Park.

I would say Operation Rudolph was a success. Donations totaling $3850.00 were received from individual officers, the NAACP, and local retail businesses. This allowed each of the 21 families to receive close to $200 in gift cards along with food for the holidays.

See? We do like to give out things other than tickets.
