Police in Holden plan to bring back their "Candy From A Cop" event this year. With the Covid-19 pandemic in full swing last year, they created the program as a way for families to still get a treat at Halloween, without putting themselves at risk.

Through generous donations from local businesses and community members, Holden PD did a kind of reverse trick-or-treating, taking the goodies to the kiddos.

"Last year was the first time we'd ever done so, and we delivered candy, gift cards, toys, etc., to roughly 60 people in town. With COVID-19 still likely hampering some kids' trick-or-treat plans, we'll be doing it once again," said Police Chief Chris Greeley.

Where Covid-19 numbers are still on the rise, Greeley thought it would be a good idea to bring back the program for a second year.

 "If you LIVE IN HOLDEN and call 843-5442 and ask for Chief Chris Greeley, I'll schedule your Halloween 'Candy From A Cop' delivery for Sunday, the 31st. Holden police officers will start around noon and go till 9 pm that day, delivering brand-new stuffed animals, candy, and more! Holden PD does ask that you place your request by Friday afternoon, for the purpose of scheduling the delivery."
Greeley said those interested in making a donation towards this year's "Candy from a Cop" program can also reach out, using that abovementioned number to do so.

"I'm really grateful to have the support of my staff and the community to be able to put these programs together," said Greeley.
