San Andreas, CA — The newest trading cards in Calaveras County do not feature sports stars or comic book heroes, rather members of the Sheriff´s Department.
Children under the age of 16 are being encouraged to collect all 67 cards, which can be obtained by going up and asking the individual department member.
“I think it is a good way for kids to get past the uniform and see the human side of deputies,” says Sgt. Dave Seawell. “It´s going to help promote interaction between the deputies and kids.”
Each card features photos, biographical information and advice. Children who collect all of the cards will be eligible to receive one of five new BMX bicycles that are being given away as grand prizes. The contest through the Sheriff´s Department runs from January 12th through June 12th.
