8-year-old shares birthday with sheriff's office
Duchesne County Sheriff's Office
"Elliot Robinson and his sister Kadee Robinson brought Rice Krispies Treats to the sheriff's office to share with deputies and staff in honor of Elliot's 8th birthday. This is a tradition Elliot started a few years ago.
Sherrie Thompson, Cynthia Wardle, Lt. Dela Rowley, Detective John Crowley and Lt. Monty Nay greeted Elliot and Kadee, giving them each a bag with a coloring book, a ruler, a pencil and glow stick. Lt. Nay also gave them each a Sheriff's Emergency Response Team (SERT) patch.
Thank you, Elliot, for sharing your birthday with us again this year!"
Kid makes card to thank police officer
"My little neighborhood friend turned 3. He's the cutest little boy ever who always makes sure to yell hi, run over and help me water flowers, and he loves waving to me as I leave for work. He helped his parents make this poster and letter... I'm not crying, you're crying."
