The Abbotsford Police Department has released its holiday greeting card for this year, and it pokes fun at last year's card.
In 2012, the APD received some criticism for its card featuring a heavily armed chief Bob Rich.
However, the APD says its cards, which are sent to some criminals, are about "offering positive options to people".

Canada Post has announced big plans to overhaul the country's mail system.
Here's what Canada Post has in store for Canadians.
1. Bye-bye home delivery
Canada Post plans to phase out door-to-door mail delivery over the next five years. Eventually, all urban residents with doorstep mailboxes will have to walk to a community mailbox, or "superbox".
Former ICBC CEO Robyn Allan says the public has been fed a "false narrative" about tar-sands pipelines by industry.
Allan, who was also the senior economist for B.C. Central Credit Union, has put together this informative video presentation about government policy regarding oil pipeline proposals such as Enbridge's Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain expansion.
The video concludes with a segment titled "Top 10 Economic Reasons to Say 'No'".
A month ago, the founder of lululemon athletica suggested to an interviewer that some women's bodies were to blame for the Vancouver-based company's see-through yoga pants fiasco. Then Chip Wilson added fuel to the backlash by releasing a pseudo-apology on video—one that apologized to the staff of lululemon, but not its customers.
You won't see the word DEVIL or BIGPIG on any B.C. licence plate.
That's because earlier this year, ICBC rejected these requests from motorists wanting these letters on vanity plates.
Why? Because ICBC considered DEVIL and BIGPIG to be "offensive".
Nor will you come across vanity plates with the words BITCHIN, DAM, BAD ASS, or GWI LOW, which is Cantonese slang for "white man".
They were vetoed for the same reason in 2012.
Jordan Bateman of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation obtained the complete list of vetoed plates after filing an access-to-information request to ICBC.
Others deemed offensive included: FU, F U, FUBAR, and KKK.

News reports regularly state that there is massive opposition to Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway pipeline in First Nations communities across B.C. But those reports rarely feature the voices of First Nations people who aren't chiefs.
In her short film "No Tankers Territory", Ora Cogan shares the views of Heiltsuk women in Bella Bella on the pipeline. The National Energy Board is expected to issue its decision on the pipeline by the end of this month. The final decision rests with the federal cabinet.
Candles were lit and roses laid as a crowd of approximately 60 people bundled against the cold wind the morning of December 6 to mark the 24th National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Thornton Park, Vancouver. Ellen Woodsworth was joined by Audrey Rivers, Lucia Lorenzi, Jen Sung, Julia Ostertag, Kat Norris, and Joni Miller to reflect on the elements of violence still present in Canadian society and possible solutions.
