In a Christmas tradition, Issaquah police officers and department employees spread some holiday cheer to local families Dec. 21.
Each Christmas, the Issaquah Police Department adopts a needy family, gathers items from a Christmas wish list and then accompanies Santa Claus for a special delivery.
Santa receives some help from officers — a ride in a police vehicle — to present the gifts to the family.
Once the department picks a pair of families in need, agency employees snapped up items from the wish list.
Then, department employees wrapped the gifts for the family, headed to the home and — spoiler alert — Motorcycle Officer John Lindner donned a red suit to portray Santa Claus.
