The officers volunteered their time to promote a positive relationship between the community and law enforcement.

The morning began with the children meeting the officers for breakfast at a local restaurant. After breakfast the group went to Wal-Mart where each child could spend $100 on gifts for themselves and/or their family. The money was donated by several local sponsors.
