Santa Cops is a non-profit organization consisting of representatives from Fort Collins Police Services, Loveland Police Department, Larimer County Sheriff's Office, Colorado State Patrol, and Colorado State University Police and countless private individuals and businesses, each of whom are vital to our success. Together, we try to provide underprivileged children of Larimer County with three small gifts to bring a Merry Christmas to their homes. These are children who come from all walks of life and differing circumstances, but all are faced with financial limitations in their homes. Our mission is to promote a positive law enforcement image with these children. Children need to experience officers as caring people who are willing to provide positive support. Each Christmas season, our officers personally delivery these presents to the children of the families that apply for our program. Families must live in Larimer County to be eligible.
Santa Cops is strictly a volunteer organization in which all donations go to the children. Volunteers are needed for many different areas: fund raisers, toy pickups, sorting, making craft items for sales and so forth. In addition, to promote public awareness and raise funds we participate in community based events throughout the year.

Monetary donations can be sent to Larimer County Santa Cops, c/o Touchstone Property Management, 2850 McClelland Drive, Suite 1000, Fort Collins, CO 80525.
