Pete perused the NYPD’s Most Wanted list for the most heinous holiday criminals, in the hopes of finding the individual who stole Christmas, the magician responsible for taking Frosty the Snowman’s magic hat and more.
In the criminal justice system, candy cane assaults are considered especially heinous.

Candy cane assaults are extra serious crime this time of year and Pete is on the case to solve them.
Pete has also patrolled in a police cruiser, decorated the precinct, and “helped” with some of the office paperwork in his first few days with the NYPD. What else will he do this Christmas season?
