Sheriff Chris Nocco and the cadre of Pasco County, Fla., law enforcement deputies now have teddy bears to stuff in their patrol cruiser trunks, enabling them to distribute a colorful bear to children they meet during on-duty assignments.

The Knitters For Charity group in Pasco County, Fla., has put together an ample supply of stuffed teddy bears and presented them to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco and his staff received the tremendously-generous donation recently from the group of highly-talented women who make up the Knitters For Charity team.

Hundreds of teddy bears in a wide array of colors, sizes, themes and designs were donated to law enforcement deputies to retain on-board their cruisers. In the event a deputy happens upon a child or children in some stage of duress, the stuffed teddy bears serve to alleviate some grief and fear.

The teddy bears also act as conduits between children and law enforcement deputies, facilitating the "police are our friends" theme.

Each bear hand-generated by the ladies who comprise Knitters For Charity is adorned uniquely, with its own pattern and coloration without duplicity.

The supply of teddy bears from Knitters For Charity provides law enforcement deputies with another tool to utilize as they navigate through patrol duties in Pasco County. The kind gesture and generous supply of animatedly and skillfully designed bears from Knitters For Charity also exhibits how well the community civic groups work with its public safety professionals.
