(WDAY TV) - Fargo Police's very own Mr. and Mrs. Claus are suited up and spreading Christmas cheers! It's the ninth year the couple has taken charge of the event.

This year, the Claus couple had to take a four wheel drive squad car, instead of the traditional vintage Chevrolet. They'll drive around, stopping at every school and neighborhood along the way, giving out Christmas presents. It's something they say gets better, every year.

"It's priceless, people talk all the time and say ‘oh this is really nice that you guys do this’, police department and stuff, but we get more fun out of it. We get a greater reward giving gifts."

Lieutenant Claus says he's been doing Santa-like things since he was a kid. He says it just kind of comes with the name.
