CLEVELAND, Tennessee- Numerous sheriff deputies and the Bradley County sheriff were outside of a chick fil a, today but it was for a good reason.
Bradley County Sheriff’s office teamed up with the Chick-Fil-a on Pail Huff parkway in Cleveland to help bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement.
From 5 to 7 P.M. on Tuesday, Bradley County Sheriffs passed out Chick-Fil-a cookies, stuffed toys, and meet with the community.
Bradley County Sherriff’s spokesperson Taylor Woodruff said these events help service the community and humanize the badge.
“The majority of the time you see law enforcement officers they’re running code or working or you know out here even with the masks on it could be hard to have that interpersonal contact so we’re just happy to have the opportunity to talk to people,” said Woodruff.
“They are heroes in our community and the purpose of this event is to let kids know the cops are safe,” said Aubrey Michaels.
Michaels said she’s very proud to be able to team up with the sheriff’s office and help feed the community.
