The temperatures are dropping, days are shorter, and the leaves are changing which also means the holiday season is quickly approaching.  While this time of year is certainly joyous for most, there are many families that simply do not have the means to provide gifts for their children. The Holiday Heroes program by the Dover Police Department is here to help for the 5th consecutive year.  Holiday Heroes is a program that allows children from the Dover area to pair up with a Dover Police Officer to go shopping for Christmas gifts at the Dover Target store.  In 2016, the department was able to help 60 children from our area and provide them with a Christmas they likely would not have had.  The Dover Police Department is now launching a public fundraising campaign through the popular site Go Fund Me, to raise $5,000.00 by December 1st.  Donations can be made online at: www.gofundme.com/dpdkids or by calling or e-mailing Mark Hoffman at
