Issaquah police officers and department employees spread some holiday cheer to local families Dec. 17.
The department has a tradition of adopting a needy family and gathering items from a Christmas wish list.
Then, Santa Claus receives a little help from officers to present the gifts to the family.
The agency started the tradition four years ago.
For Christmas, the department picked a pair of families in need — a total of six children and five adults — and employees snapped up items from the wish list.
The holiday haul included big-ticket items, like bikes and helmets, Barbie dolls, Razor scooters and other toys, plus bedding, kitchenware and other household essentials. Red Robin also donated a $50 gift card for a family.
