Local law enforcement brings the joy of Christmas

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Professional Police Officers Association teamed up with Big Brothers, Big Sisters for the third time to make a special Christmas for 40 children Saturday.

The prancing and pawing of each little hoof was not the sound that woke up Reggie Cobbs Saturday morning.  Instead, sirens and bright red and blue lights pulled him out of bed as his Santa Cop picked him up for an adventure filled with delight.

First stop on their list was Barnes and Noble where 40 Lubbock kids dashed down the aisles in hopes of finding exciting new books. "A Billy B. Jones book, and a Star Wars book," said Cobbs. 

Next the kids filled their bellies at Golden Corral. Then, they set off to Wal-Mart to find something to make each child smile.  "One of the first things we told our officers, they should try and get the needs for the children and then get into some of the wants that the children want. So we try and cover everything with the needs first and then go to the fun stuff," said Tim Seeley.

"Now we're here at Wal-Mart doing some shopping, got some clothes and some toys," said Paul Nichols. 

An outfit is not complete without new shoes. Each kid found a pair that fit just right at Cardinals. Then, the officers took the kids for some entertainment at Movie 16.

"It's a great opportunity to give back to the community and get to meet this little guy and have a good time with him and just share his enjoyment. It's real nice," said Nichols. 

At the end of the day each child received a final surprise of a new bike from Yate's Flooring, which brought even more smiles.
