Good News – On 12/22 officers were busy spreading holiday cheer. Patrol officers handed out candy canes at the elementary schools in the morning. Officer Fitzpatrick was at Georgetown East Elementary and they invited him inside to get a pie in the face from a student. There are some great photos of this on our Facebook page.
Officers from Community Services handed out cards and candy canes from Mayor Pantelides, the Alderwomen and men, and several local churches and community groups to middle schoolers coming home from school the past two days.
Our detectives planned giving gifts to a family or two and chipped in together to make it happen. We added a generous donation from an Annapolis resident and they were able to do some wonderful things last night. Check out the photos and videos from their travels through Annapolis on our Facebook page.
