ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some children couldn't get out and enjoy Easter this Sunday. So a group of Dougherty County police officers brought Easter to them. The Easter bunny was escorted by several officers into the pediatrics ward at Phoebe Putney.

They handed out plush toys, crayons and coloring books. The Dougherty County Police Department was the first law enforcement agency in the state of Georgia to do this.

The officers involved volunteer their time for the effort and say it's worth it to bring smiles to children's faces.

"That's priceless, you can't put a price on that. It's wonderful. This is just great. This is the fun part of being in law enforcement. We love doing this," said Captain Jimmy Sexton.

This is the fourth year that the Dougherty County Police Department partnered with the Easter Bunny Foundation to bring Easter to sick children.
