  1. Very nice photos and a great effort every year.

    Let’s not forget that Kenosha, Pleasant Prairie and Twin Lakes officers also do the same thing every year. Kudos to them, too.

  2. It’s great to see the Deputies participate and show the community their human side. It’s great for kids to be up close to deputies and recognize them as people who are giving and helpful. I hope the families who received these gifts go out and tell the neighborhood the good that was done. Meijer’s has been great in helping KPD, PPPD and KSD in this endeavor. I’m sure Fredrick Meijer (if alive) would be happy to see the community coming together. Merry Christmas to all of the deputies and officers in Kenosha County
