St. Louis police officers to pass out stuffed animals to children

St. Louis police have gone into the Teddy Bear distribution business, thanks to residents of the nearby Pine River Correctional Facility.

Inmates there have created dozens of stuffed animals that Frank Yell of the Michigan Department of Correction has distributed to Gratiot County police departments.

Police Chief Richard J. Ramereiz Jr. said each patrol car will soon be equipped with a bag of Teddy Bears to hand out to children whom police officers encounter on calls.
