The purpose of the KYGO Christmas Crusade for Children is to brighten the spirits of children who would not otherwise receive a gift on Christmas morning and to present police officers as positive figures in their lives. The program was started in 1983 by a small group of police officers calling themselves “Santa Cops”. The program has grown to include about 6,000 children across the metro area. Through 2006, the program has touched the lives of over 186,000 kids.
Over 30 law enforcement agencies participated in the program in 2007. The information on children in need is developed by police officers from the Northglenn Police Department, items are purchased, and the officers deliver the items to children prior to Christmas.
Please join the members of the Northglenn Police Department with their efforts to help children in need in the Northglenn area this Christmas.
