Lamar Co. Sheriff's Department gives back to the community

LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Members of the Lamar County Sheriff's Department took time out of their day to spread a little Christmas joy.

Officers got help from Santa Claus as they passed out toys to kids in the county.

The department works to collect toys, and give back to the community and makes sure kids have a nice Christmas.

"Well it's just an opportunity for us to give back to the community that's been good to us this year,” said Maj. Brad Weathers with the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department. “The Hattiesburg area as a whole has gone through a lot, law enforcement has gone through a lot. We thought it was good that we have their support and we thought it was a good thing to do for Christmas, to give back to the kids.”

The department hopes to continue the tradition for years to come.
