ROSSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) - An effort to show appreciation for first responders turns into a new way for the Clinton County Sheriff's Office to comfort victims.
Phyllis Hoovler of Rossville came up with Quilts for Sheriffs after the shootings in Newtown, Conn.
Hoovler wanted to honor first responders there by distributing quilts here.
Clinton County Sheriff Jeff Ward says they will use the quilts in all sorts of instances including domestic situations.
"I thought I would put a quilt in every patrol car in Clinton County as an expression of our gratitude and our appreciation for their work and service in our county," Hoovler said.
"Quilts really do provide comfort and warmth," said Ward. "What more could you ask for? If you're trying to help someone and provide that."
14 quilts were given to the Clinton County Sheriff's Office and one was given to the Rossville Town Marshal.
