The Project Hope Christmas Party in Fairfax was another huge success and a great time was had by all. The Herndon Police Department sent a large group of officers who participated in games with the kids. The kids got to watch the officers compete in games and then decorated the officers as Christmas trees. The parents, staff and kids got to vote to pick a winner. We enjoyed pizza and desert after the games and each of the children got to pick a Christmas present from an array of games and toys.
This is one of our premier projects and we were featured in a recent article in the Police Executive Research Forum as one of the premier programs in the country in bringing youth, communities and law enforcement together. I have included a link to the article if you have time to read.
