Santa visits the Edmond Police Dept. - Photo Gallery 9/14

Santa stopped by the Edmond police station Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012, to visit with children, hear their Christmas lists and pose for keepsake photos that were provided for the children by Edmond police department. Santa stands to welcome Clara Dunn, 10 months old, as she is carried into the room. Playing Santa is Boyd Mize, a retired detective with the Edmond police department. This is the eighth year Mize has donned the Santa suit for the police department's day with Santa. But Mize said this is the first year he didn't have to wear a fake beard; all the hair on Santa's face is natural this year. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
