Some students at Turner Elementary-Middle School get an early Christmas gift.

Monday's visit by Ole St. Nick kicked off this year's Operation Santa Claus. 

Santa was helped by his elves, Sgt. Tina Fruge of the Bossier Sheriff's Office, Cpl. Van Wray of the Shreveport Police Department and Officer Javon Tyler of the Shreveport Police Department. 

Operation Santa Claus is an annual event held by the Bossier Sheriff's Office, Shreveport Police and Fire Departments to provide Christmas toys to about 1,000 disadvantaged children in Bossier and Caddo Parishes.
