After 35 years of service to the Larimer County community, the Santa Cops of Larimer County board has made the difficult decision to dissolve as of August 31, 2023. After a long search for a new home, we were unable to secure a new permanent (of at least three years) home. This decision did not come lightly from our board as many of us have worked tirelessly to come up with a solution. We truly appreciate the support of the community, our agencies, and to those of you that made suggestions for us. As a board, we are deciding how our assets will be distributed according to our bylaws. We will be holding a board meeting in the middle of September and will give an update after the meeting.
Santa Cops was a non-profit organization consisting of representatives from Fort Collins Police Services, Loveland Police Department, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol, and the District Attorney’s Office that was formed in 1987. Santa Cops of Larimer County worked to provide toys for children in need within Larimer County to enhance the relationship between children and law enforcement within our communities for Christmas and throughout the year.
These are children who come from all walks of life and differing circumstances, but all are faced with 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 deliver these presents to the children of the families that apply for our program. Families must live in Larimer County to be eligible.
