The Santa Monica Police Officer’s Association has canceled their Candy Cane Drive. “Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our fellow community members, we have decided to cancel this Saturday’s annual Candy Cane Drive,” said a statement from the POA. “Though we’re saddened to not be Santa’s official escort around our city this year, the big guy has told us to rest assured that Santa Monica is on the nice list for his rounds next Thursday night. Happy Holidays to everyone and we’re confident we’ll be back to this great tradition next year.”
