A group of young girls from the Weston Second LDS Ward recently presented the Preston Police Department with several fleece blankets as a service project.
The blankets will be placed in each of the patrol cars, according to Chief Val Sparrow, who said they will be used to wrap up accident and fire victims.
“These types of blankets have a way of giving comfort to those in need,” he said. “It is important for the youth of the area to look for ways to serve their community and it is very pleasing to think these girls would provide us these blankets.”
The girls, aged nine and 10, were given a tour of the police station. They were shown interrogation rooms, the evidence area and also equipment on hand for search and rescue.
Sparrow also explained when to call 911 and what 911 is used for. Officer Chad Dunn fingerprinted the girls and gave them DNA kits to take home to their parents.
