The "Cops and Kids" program allows disadvantaged youth in Nassau County to shop for Christmas presents with a Nassau County Sheriff's Deputy or get school supplies throughout the year. Sheriff Tommy Seagraves started the program in 2006. Since then, deputies have been able to help more than 850 children through donations from the community.
