Santa cop is coming to B.C. town

  • Print

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Prolific criminal offenders in Abbotsford, B.C., who have made the police department's naughty list will soon be getting a special Christmas greeting.

The front of a police department card shows Santa dressed in police tactical gear and carrying a machine-gun.

The message on the front asks, "Which list will you be on next year?" and inside, it tells the recipient it's never too late to make a better choice.

The card is signed by Abbotsford Chief Const. Bob Rich and his two deputy constables.

The card will go to those who have been arrested many times for property crimes and those who are known for drug and gang activity.

There's also a phone number attached to the card, which the offenders can call and leave their names and contact information to get help in making a life-changing choice.
