  • Deputy Hugs Program


    Deputy Hugs Program for troubled childrenStudies have shown that no single object calms a troubled child as quickly as a teddy bear. "Deputy Hugs" bears work with the Victim Services Unit, comforting frightened young victims of crisis or crime.

    The program, which began in 1991, works as follows: for a donation of $20, you can adopt "Deputy HUGS" for yourself or your child. At the same time, your donation will bring a "Deputy Hugs" into the life of a child in need.

    Deputies carry the bears in their patrol cars and give them to troubled children whenever appropriate.


    Our "Adopt-a-Bear for a Child's Sake" program takes community participation to be successful. Thank you for your support.
