SANTA AND THE NASHUA PD SRT TEAM TAKE THE STREETS FOR
TACTICAL CHRISTMAS 2016
On December 23, 2016, Santa will be accompanied by 20 Nashua Police Department Special Reaction
Team (SRT) members to deliver holiday joy to 10 families for the 3rd annual Tactical Christmas.
Instead of reindeer, there will be a caravan of navy blue vehicles serving as a 21st century sleigh. Santa and his badgewearing
elves will exit the heavy‐armor police truck and greet families selected by PAL with dozens of gifts.
Nashua Police Officer, Michael DeBisz, joined PAL as the PAL Officer in July 2016. He states, “Tactical
Christmas is a great program! It gives families a sense of community and spreads so much joy during the
holidays.” Officer DeBisz went on to say how proud he was to be a part of the PAL organization and
expressed his excitement about organizing Tactical Christmas this year.
Tactical Christmas is put on in partnership with Nashua PAL, the Nashua Police Department, Whole Foods
of Nashua, and ESPN‐NH. They are pleased to be able to deliver food and gifts to 10 of Nashua’s in‐need
families – the highest number ever. In addition to Nashua’s Tactical Christmas program this year, Nashua
PAL has also assisted Manchester PAL in developing their 1st annual Tactical Christmas and hope this
program can continue to grow.
Nashua PAL would like to thank multiple downtown Nashua businesses for hosting toy donation boxes. If
