Officers with the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department were excited to meet the kids as well.

Capt. J.J. Ruble, said, “We kind of do a drug free message for the kids. It gives the kids a way to see law enforcement in another side other than just the uniform. We get out here, and they see us as not just the badge.”
