Chatham Police stop drivers…and hand out presents

CHATHAM –Chatham Police have been spreading holiday cheer in recent days by pulling people over….and handing out gifts.

Rather than handing out tickets, officers have gifted a total of $400 to several people who may have thought that they were getting tickets after being stopped by police.

This initiative, named “Operation Santa”, was made possible through the generous donation of a private citizen who wishes to remain anonymous.

That person, recognizing that the recent climate of police and community relations nationwide is strained, wanted to highlight to members of the Chatham community that Chatham is a unique place and they are being well served by the Chatham Police Department.
