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 picked 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.
