The post from the Sherriff’s Office reads:
PARENTS…PLEASE STOP DOING THIS!
Parents, you’re walking into a gas station or a restaurant, or pass a cop on the street, and you have your small kids in tow. Your intentions are good when you tell your kids, “Be good or else they will take you to jail!” (Or something to similar to that statement)
Go on the offense instead of the defense. You’ll help your kids out and you’ll be helping us out! We will be at city and county events throughout the rest of this summer. There’s plenty of opportunities to have your kids meet us and tell them we are here to help!
So how about it folks? Can we make this change? I don’t think this is an unreasonable ask.
