We have had a teddy bear program since 1986. Generosity of public donations helps keep the program going. You can purchase a bear for donation to the Sheriff’s Office and/or purchase a bear for yourself or others. Deputy Hugs Bears sell for $12.00. Deputies give the bears to children at the time of a crisis or trauma situation. The bears help to calm the children, make them feel safer, and comfort them in difficult circumstances.
If you would like to donate to the program, or purchase bears directly for the program, please call us at 303-660-7535.
