The 15th annual Shop with the Sheriff event brought smiles to everyone and prompted curious glances from other shoppers in the store.

"People can't help but notice 25 uniformed deputies strolling through the kids departments on a Saturday morning," said Deputy Sheriff Captain Sean Whitmore. "This event lets us give back to the community we serve and have fun while we're doing it."

After 90 minutes of shopping, the group left for an early lunch at Ruby Tuesday in Fairfax. The restaurant provided free meals for all of the children.
