The Decatur Police Department Thursday honored a dozen businesses for their support of the department through the past year.

Police Chief Rex Hoskins and Lt. Delvon Campbell presented the awards at a ceremony at police headquarters.

“You all have been strong supporters of the police department for many years,” Hoskins told the group. The chief mentioned a number of police programs, including the summer event for children, Santa Cops, officers night out and many financial gifts to the department, including $35,000 from Crime Stoppers for a K-9 and Tasers for officers.

Campbell said the Santa Cops program served more than 250 people last Christmas and singled out Eric Vincent of Vincent Wealth Management for his significant support of the program.

Businesses honored this year, in addition to Vincent, included Walmart, Wise Health System, Lowe’s Home Improvements, Dairy Queen, Lowe’s Grocery, Karl Klement Ford and Dodge and Klement Distribution, James Wood Motors, Jump Party Texas, Wise Family Practice Urgent Care, and the Wise County Messenger.
