Lubbock police officers will be hitting the streets Saturday morning as part of Santa Cops.

Santa Cops is an annual event where officers volunteer their time to take a child from the local Big Brothers Big Sisters program out for a fun day in Lubbock.

Cody Nesbitt, an LPD officer and K9 unit, said that every officer looks forward to the event, and that the experience is priceless.

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

The fun filled day for the kids include stops at Walmart, Main Event, Barnes and Noble and lunch at Golden Coral.
