ATHENS, Ala. — Not every Santa wears a red suit.

Athens Police got into the holiday spirit and gave back to residents in their community Christmas Day.

Officers handed out gifts to children they encountered while out on patrol. Kids and their families met the kind gesture with smiles and posed for pictures with officers.

Behind the Badge donated funds so that police could help spread Christmas cheer to local youth.
