Teddy Bears for Crash Victims
Shown here is Mrs. Sheila Tindle (wife of Trooper Bill Tindle, Jr.) of the UDC delivering a supply of teddy bears to FHP Sgt. R. B. Brannan (left) and Trooper L. E. Coggins, Jr.
A supply of bears will be carried on board every Lakeland FHP patrol car and will be given to children involved in crashes and other tragic incidents investigated by the FHP. The Lakeland District was chosen by the UDC due to Lakeland’s high number of crashes and traffic homicides.
