Santa to arrive in police car in Upton


Upton police plan to continue their tradition of giving Santa Claus a ride around town on Christmas Eve in a police cruiser.

Santa will be making house calls from 1 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 24. The visits will last several minutes each and include photographs and more.

Those interested can schedule a visit and receive more details by calling the Police Department at (508) 529-3200. The department has sponsored Santa's visits in town for at least the last 15 years, said Police Chief Thomas Stockwell.

"It gives the little kids a chance to see the police officer as a good person, standing with Santa Claus," Stockwell said.
