It's great when everyone gets into the Holiday Spirit - especially service members within our community. That's why we love it when Temple, Belton, Killeen, Salado and surrounding community police/fire departments take a step back and act silly (almost like they're human beings!) for the benefit of the people they serve.

So we took a look at the Facebook profiles of each police and fire department in the area ranked our favorite holiday profile photos. How would you rank them?


Temple Police Department

Santa, you can only go as fast as the speed limit, even if 80 MPH doesn't seem fast enough.


Salado Volunteer Fire Department

Salado's Santa takes a break with a candy cane. Bonus points because it's green.


Stillhouse Volunteer Fire Department

One of the most patriotic and creative Christmas Wreaths I've seen.

Stillhouse Fire Department

Belton Police Department

Belton kept it simple, but that hat certainly brings out the shine of that badge!

Belton Police Department

Copperas Cove Police Department

Citizens of Copperas Cove left numerous comments thanking Cove police for all they do. Even if they decide to rock a blue Santa hat. =D


If we missed any other local departments with a holiday profile, please let us know! We don't want to leave anybody out - especially those who protect and serve our communities day in, and day out.

Make sure to wish a police officer or firefighter a Happy Holiday this week.
