On more than twenty Christmas Eves, Officer Michael D. Harrison has worked to maintain order in the community as a police officer and delivered presents to the doorsteps of underprivileged families as a secret Santa. To spread the Christmas spirit and include others in his Yuletide charity, Harrison founded Santa Cops, an organization that solicits donations to be distributed by uniformed officers. The charity has served to foster a stronger relationship between the police force and the community, ensuring that every child has a gift to open on Christmas morning. A dedicated public servant, Harrison has taught the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program to elementary-school students and counseled sixth graders on peer pressure and decision making. In capacities ranging from undercover officer for a narcotics investigation unit to deputy sheriff, Harrison has served and protected for more than thirty years. Harrison studied criminal justice at Western Carolina University. His pursuits include woodworking, skiing, scuba diving, and working to spread Santa Cops' mission beyond his hometown. He resides in Taylorsville, North Carolina.
