Each year, the Miami Beach Police Department receives hundreds of calls involving serious incidents, accidents, and acts of violence. The officers who respond to these calls may encounter children who are in a state of shock, are in pain, or are distraught.
This is where "
Operation Ted E. Bear
" comes in. This MBPD project allows police officers to provide extra care and comfort to a child by putting a cuddly teddy bear in their arms.
