Hollywood PD sends cards to naughty

Holidaycard_page_1_2Gang members in Hollywood will get holiday well wishes from an unlikely source - the
police department.

The greeting cards (at left) are being sent to about 50 "at risk youth'' who said they were in a gang at the time of their arrest.

Along with the typical holiday pleasantries, the cards include addresses and phone numbers of the local Boys & Girls Club and Police Athletic League. It's the first year the department has sent the cards.

This from the press release sent out by the police department:

"The card contains a public service announcement in the form of a simple message. The message states that there are safe places to spend their free time and lists community based programs geared towards at risk youth.''

They need to do something these punks off the street beat, and into sports.
