San Francisco Police will participate in its annual holiday visit to the pediatric wards of the University of California Hospital on Parnassus Avenue on Wednesday, December 5 starting at 10:00 A.M. until approximately 12 noon. Dressed as Santa Claus and his elves, the police volunteers will first meet in the main lobby before proceeding to the pediatric wards on the fifth and sixth floors. They will visit with the children, who range from infants to 17 years old, distributing appropriate gifts and, if the child would like, having a Polaroid picture taken to be inserted in a special frame Santa will provide. The traditional yearly visit is part of the SFPD's efforts to reach out to the community in various ways in the spirit of community policing.
