Houston Police Department Does Mugshots with Santa

Leave that Elf on the Shelf and go get mugshots this Christmas

Some parents are satisfied with hiding all of their kids toys and leaving nothing but coal under the tree — others want proof of their kids bad behavior. Leave the Elf on the Shelf and go get mugshots this Christmas!

The Pearland Police Department in suburban Houston, Texas is letting families take mugshots with their kids, listing naughty deeds on booking signs.

This is the second year of Pearland PD’s “Mugshots with Santa” event, which raises money for the department’s youth training program, the Pearland Police Explorers #237 as well as contributes to a family in need that the department adopts every Christmas.

Last year Mugshots for Santa raised $7,000 and if the event raises enough money this year the department says they could be able to adopt two needy families instead of one.

Mugshots with Santa will be taking place on December 14th this year. All ages of kids and adults are welcome to take mugshots, with whatever naughtiness they feel like listing for Santa. The photos cost $10 for the first person in and $5 for every additional person. Due to the heightened popularity of the event, there is a four-person limit to keep things moving. The event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Stray away from the same old Santa pictures and have a little fun with the kids. Its for a good cause!
