[EDSO]

After a tragic loss a few years ago, this young girl told her mom she was afraid of law enforcement. Her mom reached out to members of EDSO and we took it as an opportunity to bond with her. She was a lucky recipient of a hand crafted bear, which is made from old uniforms donated by deputies and correctional officers. By the end of this meeting, EDSO had a new friend and "Deputy the Bear" had a new home.

Building strong and lasting relationships with the youngsters of our community is vital for our future. We want children and our community to trust us and to not be afraid of us.
