Each year during the holiday season, the Hinesville Police Department’s uniform patrol division, C-Watch, opts to forgo a traditional Christmas gift exchange within the division.  Instead, the officers use the occasion to reach out to Hinesville residents who have fallen on hard times.
For the past two years, C-Watch officers and traffic control unit members have partnered to donate money they would have spent on gifts to a charity. Last year, the funds went to the children of Gabriel’s House. This year, the officers gave $530 to the Tri-County Protective Agency, a domestic violence shelter in Hinesville that houses women and children.
“It is our sincerest wish that this modest gift goes toward helping a family experience the spirit of this holiday season and the consoling warmth of knowing that someone cares,” C-Watch commander Lt. Lloyd Slater said.
