Lubbock police hit the streets as 'Santa Cops'

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Nearly 30 Lubbock police officers hit the streets Saturday morning as a part of "Santa Cops."

It's an annual event that brings together officers who volunteer their time to take a child from the local boys and girls club out for a fun day in Lubbock.

That includes a stop at Main Event for bowling and arcade games, lunch, Christmas shopping at Wal Mart, and a personalized bicycle provided by Yates Flooring Center, inscribed with the name of each child.

Officer Kody Nesbitt said, "We see a lot of bad things at our job and what we do and we knew that when we signed up and we understand that but to be able to influence these kids and for them to get something and for us to see that result is just amazing."

Nesbitt told us that all of the officers look forward to this day and it's priceless to be able to help these kids.
