LATHROP, Calif. (KTXL) -- Santa still wore red but the Christmas spirit was blue Wednesday at a Lathrop Target store.
Dozens of Lathrop law enforcement partnered up with San Joaquin County School District students to bring a little Christmas joy early this year for their annual Blue Santa event.
“The kids are kind of a little shy,” said Lathrop Police Chief Ryan Bierdermann. “They're not used to being around cops, it can be a little intimidating sometimes. The whole point of this is to kind of bridge that gap.”
