A new partnership for the OPP's Community Bear Program.

The program allows officers to provide children in stressful or traumatic situations with a stuffed teddy bear.

Sergeant Peter Leon says it helps provide reassurance and comfort to the children police encounter.

This year, TD has come on board to provide 15-hundred bears for distribution to detachments across the province.
