York City School District Police took about 50 students around town Tuesday, Dec. 19, in an effort to spread holiday cheer.

The group performed for about 15 minutes at four locations around York City, ending at Central Market.

"We were really excited to pull this together," said York City School District Police Chief Mike Muldrow on the final stretch of the holiday caroling tour.

He said the students sometimes get a bad rap.

The public doesn't "get an opportunity to actually engage with the real population of our kids and see what we really look like and how they really are," the chief said.

Muldrow said the children were a collective of students from various projects and programs with which his officers are involved. These include groups such as gospel choir, safe camp and junior officers program from Davis K-8. 

"We try to seize on as many opportunities as we can to let the community see how awesome our kids really are," he said.

"Today was really special to us because we wanted to touch some lives over the holiday season," Muldrow added. "I'm not quite sure who got the most out of the experience — whether it was the officers, my kids or the places that we visited. It thoroughly enriched our holiday."
