Over 300 deserving children (ages 6 to 12) – 40 from each of the six participating schools – were invited to the 14th annual Cops-4-Tots Toy Give-away at the La Colonia Police Storefront (211 North Grant Avenue). Toys were made available for children that were selected by the schools or families that had toddler age children. An appearance by Santa Claus added to the excitement of the event.
The children and parents were treated with Mexican bread, Champurrado (hot drink), and treats with Christmas decorations.
The participating schools include:  Ramona School, Rose Avenue School, Cesar Chavez School, Elm Street School, Green Valley, and La Escuelita. 
Members of the Oxnard Police Department Command Staff, District Three Officers, and Military members from the Port Hueneme Naval Base, AVID students from Frank Intermediate School, Oxnard Police Volunteers, and other community volunteers were on hand to assist with handing out toys.
The 14th annual Cops-4-Tots Toy Give-away was made possible by donations from the Oxnard Police Officers Association, Latino Peace Officers Association (Ventura County Chapter), and members of the United States Navy, El Concilio del Condado de Ventura, the Oxnard business community, and residents of the City of Oxnard.
