We know your law enforcement agency usually doesn't permit you to festively decorate your patrol vehicle. These vehicles need to be squared away for passing sergeants.

This didn't stop us from asking members of the POLICE Magazine Facebook page if they have decorated their patrol vehicle in a seasonal theme. We got a kick out of the stories you told us, including the one involving a "decapitated Santa head."

Happy holidays from POLICE Magazine. We wish you a warm holidays and thank you for your service in keeping the communities of this great country safe.

Marcus said: No, but one of my captains did, he put a red Rudolph nose on the grill and antlers on the two back windows of his vehicle.

Suzanne said: Decapitated Santa head on the light bar.

Lafawn said: No, No, No!!! Yellow ribbons for the soldiers are fine, but anything else? No!

Jonathan said: Hung a stocking from the antenna with a sign saying, "X-mas gifts for all." Inside were handcuffs.

Ron said: I put a Rudolph nose and antlers on our Tahoe.

Robert said: Not the patrol car, but I have worn a Santa hat!

Jon said: Do the strobes count as lights?

Michael said: I used to take a bell wreath from Hallmark that I shaped to fit around the Ford emblem that I black zip-tied to the grill of my Crown Vic. My sergeant tolerated it.

Jessie said: The only decorating it got was being cleaned!
