SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma law enforcement agencies are giving some families with young children an early Christmas gift.

The Tulsa World reports they are distributing donated computers to the families as part of the 12th annual North Pole Computer Project.

PC Power, a nonprofit organization that provides refurbished computers to at-risk children, partnered with area police departments to distribute the computers Monday.

Sand Springs police dropped off 11 computers Monday; law enforcers from Tulsa, Jenks, Sand Springs, Broken Arrow and Sapulpa as well as Cherokee and Osage Nation tribal police dropped off more than 60 computers total.

Sand Springs Police Department Sgt. Kristie Behar says the effort helps build relationships between officers and their communities. Behar says officers identified families who would receive a computer by talking to teachers in the community.
