CHP Plays Santa To Barrio Logan Kids

For the second year in a row, San Diego’s California Highway Patrol officers handed out more than 1,000 new toys on Tuesday for their “CHiPs for Kids” holiday charity program.

In Barrio Logan, hundreds of kids turned up to see Santa and Chipper, the mascot for the California Highway Patrol.

“It’s fantastic to see their eyes light up as we drive in,” said CHP Sgt. Jim McNamar.

Emily Valverde, who helped organize the event, said having law enforcement interact with the community can have a positive impact on the kids.

“Most of the time kids see the police officer as someone not approachable. This gives them the opportunity to see they can be your friends,” she said.
