As a department, we are proud of the partnership and cooperation we share with our community. We are committed to working together to make certain that our community is a safe place to live, work and visit.
The holiday season is approaching and for many families in our community, they struggle throughout the year just providing the basic living necessities. The excitement and surprise of Christmas is for other families, not their own. With our annual Holidays &Heroes event, we hope to spread joy to children who might not otherwise have the resources to celebrate.
Holiday cheer and goodwill is upon us. Sadly many in our community do not have basic items of food or clothing, let alone the opportunity to feel the joy of Christmas. This year as in years past, the Spokane County Sheriff's Department, Post Falls Police Department, Kootenai County Sheriff's Department, Coeur d'Alene Police Department, Coeur d'Alene Tribal Police, Kootenai County Fire & Rescue, Rathdrum Police Department, Spirit Lake Police Department, Idaho State Police, Coeur d'Alene firefighters, and numerous volunteers are proud to join together and participate again this year in the “Holidays and Heroes” program.
