Santa Cops

The Santa Cops program is a partnership between the Bedford Police Department and Christmas Providers, an HEB non-profit organization. For more than 35 years, Christmas Providers has helped to fulfill the Christmas wishes of families in the HEB area affected by unfortunate circumstances. 

As part of the program, Bedford Police Department officers, civilian staff, and the Bedford Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association will deliver new, unopened gifts to Bedford area children that might have otherwise not received gifts for Christmas.

The children in the Santa Cops program are provided to the Bedford Police Department by Christmas Providers and must attend HEB or Birdville ISD. The non-profit work closely with the school counselors from these districts to ensure that the neediest families are offered help.
