Wilmington police officers, WPD employees and other "elves" gave Santa a helping hand this year. Some area children got to "shop with a cop" on Thursday morning, December 18. WPD and the elves paired up with 53 children for some breakfast and Christmas shopping. The event has been held annually for at least 18 years.
Santa Cop is financed through generous donations and gifts from local businesses, individual contributors and the Wilmington Police Recreation Association. The event was hosted by the WalMart on Sigmon Road (off Market Street).
