(Raw interviews and b-roll below copy) - Media, here is a private Vimeo links to b-roll and raw interviews that you are free to use. We gained permission to videotape the participants during sign-up. We only ask that as a courtesy you not run the interviews in their entirety because they are not edited.

On Saturday, December 3, Eugene Police officers, LCSO deputies, and Oregon State Police troopers, buddied up with 33 children to shop for holiday gifts for the childrens' families (siblings and parents) as well as non-perishable food that will help provide a holiday dinner. All costs were covered through generous donations from the Eugene Police Foundation, with thanks to Fred Meyer’s who has partnered with EPD on the venue for several years, and provided considerable discounts on purchases, donation of breakfast for the children, and a holiday tree. Gifts were wrapped by EPD Volunteers in Policing members and EPD employees. The children participating are from 4j, Bethel and the Natives Program.
