    Jasper Police Department dispatcher Erin Gould carried Mia of Jasper, 4, as they made their way to the toy section with Gould’s fiancé Ryan Stemle of Celestine on Wednesday during the annual Tri-Cap Head Start Cops and Kids event at Walmart in Jasper. “It’s awesome for the kids because they get to see law enforcement in a different light than they may on an everyday basis and we get to interact with them on a fun level,” said Jasper Police Sergeant Adam Bower who organized the event. During the event, local law enforcement spent time shopping for gifts for more than 50 children. Jacob Wiegand/The Herald
