JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Many kids went to Miracle League Park Saturday for the first ever Fraternal Order of Police Easter Egg Hunt.

Over 5,000 eggs where set out on the baseball field for the kids to collect in their baskets.

Saturday's event had volunteers from Central Baptist Church and the Jonesboro Fraternal Order of Police.

Andy Thrasher, vice president of Jonesboro's FOP, said he hopes events like this will show police involvement within the community.

"Hopefully they will see that we are not just here to do our normal job we are here to help the community," Thrasher said. "Hopefully they will see that there is another side to law enforcement and that we are here to help."

The kids were able to collect special prizes in some of the eggs along with getting their picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

The event ended with a cook out for all participants.
