The Cops Care for Kids Christmas Program was started 15 years ago by Kingston Paul, of the Fairfield Police Department, to help create a positive relationship between the children of the community and the police officers at the department. What started out as delivering one stuffed animal with a Christmas tag to 40 kids has grown into delivering three small gifts along with their signature stuffed animal and tag to over 250 children. The officers donate money out of their paychecks every week, all year long to help keep the program going along with donations from the community and an amazing donation from Kingston before he passed away to ensure the program carries on.
