Several Las Vegas Police Department officers and their family members pose for a photo before setting out delivering presents to children in the community Sunday morning. They delivered $3,000 worth of toys, 20 winter coats and roughly 70 turkeys to needy families in Las Vegas. The items, nicely wrapped, filled two large SUVs and a bed of a pick-up truck. Lt. Michael Lopez of the police union coordinates the annual event.
