Officers from the Enfield Police Department are among this month’s special guests on “Senator Kissel & Friends.” The show runs Mondays at 9:30 PM on PATV15.

The Enfield Police Department will hold its “Toys for Joy” collection Enfield Square Mall on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.

The department will be trying to “Stuff a Cruiser” with toys this weekend and hope to stuff three.
Enfield Police Department Captain Fred Hall and Officer Michael Krznowek help coordinate the effort to bring happiness to local children this holiday season. Police Explorers, along with help from the Enfield Auxiliary Police and Capitol Region Education Council’s Public Safety Academy, will accept unwrapped gifts and monetary donations in front of the Target store at the mall. All donations will go to needy families in Enfield.

There is a particular need for toys for children in the 8 – 10 age group. Visit www.toysforjoy.org for more information.

Residents can bring gifts and donations anytime to the Enfield Police Department at 293 Elm Street. Routine questions can be directed to Enfield Police Department at (860) 763-6400.

State Senator John A. Kissel joined the officers in praising Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza for his tireless efforts on behalf of the successful toy drive.

“Without Chief Sferrazza, there would be no Toys for Joy,” Sen. Kissel said. “His hard work has made such a positive impact on children in our town and has assured that it will be a Merry Christmas in Enfield. We cannot thank him enough, and we urge Enfielders to stop by the toy drive this weekend.”

Kissel praised Capt. Hall and Officer Krznowek for their outreach efforts and commended the police department as a whole for the tremendous work it does to bring the community together.
