  CCPOA Santa Sleigh 2014

In the early 80's, members of the Culver City Police Officer's Association wanted to host an event that would create goodwill between the police department and the community. The Santa Sleigh was born out of an idea that the goodwill that Santa Claus builds transcends all races and religions. Since December of 1984, the C.C.P.O.A. has escorted Santa, his Sleigh, and helpers around the city streets of Culver City making the Santa Sleigh a true, unique, and multi generational Culver City tradition.

Weeks before Santa's big night out, aka Christmas, Santa and his Sleigh is escorted, code three - lights and sirens, by the Culver City Police Department's custom show truck, black and white patrol vehicles, and police motorcycles. The Sleigh is staffed by volunteers from the C.C.P.O.A., their families, and friends of the community; which is as much as a tradition as the Sleigh itself.

Culver City is pleased to announce that we are the first city in California to implement a new system to improve 9-1-1 services for all citizens. Smart911 allows individuals to create a Safety Profile for their household that includes vital personal and medical information that will be available to emergency responders in the event that 9-1-1 is called. This is of great benefit to not only our 9-1-1 call takers, but also our first response teams, as your personal Safety Profile can help them respond to your emergency call faster and with more information.

The Smart911 service is free to citizens and 100% private and secure. This is a national database, meaning that when you dial 9-1-1 from any location in the US that has the Smart911 service installed, your Safety Profile will be immediately available to those 9-1-1 call takers.
