The non-profit organization provides the bundles to local law enforcement officers to be given to children involved in traffic accidents, fires and domestic situations. The blankets symbolize security and the toy symbolizes fun, according to Heather Bivens of Frankfort. She and Nikki Miller, also of Frankfort, started the program. Bivens said troopers working the incidents will be given to children for comfort and distract the children who may be involved.

KSP Post 12 serves Anderson, Fayette, Franklin, Scott, Shelby, Spencer and Woodford counties.
