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.''
