NASHUA - The Nashua Police Department's Special Reaction Team got some special reactions earlier this week as they dropped off toys and holiday meals to several needy families.
According to The Telegraph of Nashua, the officers have dubbed the annual event "Tactical Christmas," putting their armored police truck to use as Santa's sleigh.
"This is what you get into this profession for. You get into this profession to do good things for good people, to help people where you can," said Philip Belmont, coordinator with Nashua Police Athletic League and a city police officer.
Ed Lecius, the department's community policing coordinator, dressed as Santa. Along with officers dressed in camouflage and Special Reaction Team uniforms, they worked their way around downtown to drop off the gifts.
"The kids are going to die on Christmas when they see all these presents," said Ken Nelson, a Nashua resident who received gifts for his six grandchildren this season.
"That's what PAL is all about - we're teaching kids about cops, but we're also teaching police about the families," said PAL Executive Director Shaun Nelson.
