It's almost here! Santa Claus makes his world famous flight late next Saturday night and early Sunday.

Early Christmas morning, kids all over will wake to find the gifts they've dreamed of for the last several months.

However, Bossier Parish Sheriff's Deputies, Bossier City Police, Haughton, Benton and Plain Dealing Police, Louisiana State Troopers and all other law enforcement of Bossier Parish will wake to find a different kind of Santa Claus Sunday morning.

Who Is This Jolly Old Elf?

He's Don Tubbs, owner of Tubbs Hardware and Cajun Gifts on Benton Road in Bossier City. For as long as I can remember, Don wakes up bright and early Christmas morning and leaves the comforts of his warm, cozy home, so that he can go fire up the Big Green Eggs at Tubbs and provide a free meal to all of Bossier Parish's law enforcement.

Why Does Tubbs Do This Every Year?

As a reserve Bossier Deputy himself, Tubbs has experienced the Christmas holiday while out in a patrol car. He says, "It occurred to me that these brave men and women who are working on Christmas leave their families and those wonderful meals prepared specifically for this day, only to find themselves in search of something to eat, and nearly every place is closed."

What's The Schedule And What's On The Menu?

So, from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm on Christmas Day, Tubbs and his staff at Tubbs Hardware and Cajun Gifts will provide an incredible, homecooked, FREE meal for all law enforcement in Bossier Parish. Those LEO's who can stop by Tubbs at 615 Benton Road in Bossier will be served smoked brisket with all the trimmings from the Smokin' Cowboy Caterer and Down Home Sausage is providing the meats. They'll also find appetizers and snacks provided by Bear Creek Smokehouse.

But, for those who can't stop by, like any enforcement working dispatch or jailers and others working at the prison, Tubbs will see to it that this hot, delicious meal is delivered directly to them!

He calls it "Back the Bossier Parish Blue" and Officers, Marshals, Constables, Troopers and Deputies working to protect us all on Christmas, have come to expect the kindness of Tubbs and he never fails.

Tubbs also mentions that any person who might like to stop by and shake the hands of the officers and thank them for protecting and serving our community, or drop off other goodies for law enforcement, is certainly welcome. It could be candy or cards or just a THANK YOU for the job they do.
