The teddy bears are given in hopes that they might provide comfort and companionship to victims of car crashes, child protection investigations or other incidents. The hope is that the teddy bear would ease the anxiety and fear during these type situations.

“We really appreciate the kindness shown by Jan Barnhill in donating the teddy bears to the Sheriff’s Office,” Sheriff McVicker said. “The Barnhill’s have been long supporters of law enforcement and the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office.”
