Crime Fighter/Personal Shopper

I'm sure this is a worthy charity, but I'm a little puzzled by the "Shop with a Deputy Sheriff" foundation. (I pass this billboard every day on the way to work.)

Apparently the idea is to let needy people go shopping with a police officer.

Is this odd? I wouldn't think a deputy sheriff would be the ideal person to have along during a shopping spree. That is, unless you were looking for handcuffs and mustache wax (actually, that might be considered a pretty valuable service around here).

Also, why only deputies — are there no actual sheriffs available?

I've decided to come at this from a different angle. Please donate to my new foundation: "Arrest Criminals with Fashion Expert Tim Gunn."
