BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) -

Brookland Middle School students served up a big breakfast to back the blue.

Craighead County Sheriff's deputies along with members of the Brookland Police Department enjoyed a large spread of donuts, biscuits, breakfast burritos, pastries, coffee, and juice at Brookland Middle School Wednesday.

Sixth graders Braden Stewart and Deacon Parnell said they love this event. “I think this is a very good idea,” Stewart said. “Whenever I grow up I want to be a cop or in the military.” “They put their lives on the line every day that they go to work,” Parnell said. “My dad is a cop, and I just love it. I want to be a cop when I grow up.”

All of the students, with the help of parents and teachers, served each law enforcement officer with a smile and told the men and women in uniform they appreciate their service.

Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd said it's fun to see the kids in a classroom setting.

“A lot of officers here today that they get to interact with us,” Boyd said. “They get to meet us first hand and see that we are just like everybody else.”

This is the second year for Breakfast with a Cop at BMS.

Over 20 law enforcement officers attended the breakfast.

Each left with a bag of goodies that included a note identifying a reason for the candy inside including “Caramel because you help others get out of sticky situations” and “100 Grand because you don’t do it for the money.”
