HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — Christmas is next Tuesday and the Tampa Police Department is making sure that Santa can safely deliver toys to children across the city.

"This is our most important operation of the year," said Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan.

The Tampa Police Department is sharing video of Chief Dugan's roll call across its social media accounts.

"As you know, Santa is expected to arrive in Tampa on Christmas Eve as soon as every boy and girl are asleep," said Dugan.

Officers from across the department came together to create the Christmas video.

"Everyone is expected to provide any and all assistance to make this the best Christmas ever," said Dugan.
