Around the world, our police officers work hard to protect and serve their local community on a daily basis.
Some of us might perceive cops as the go-to people in an emergency situation, what makes them true public servants is when they go beyond their call of duty and display random acts of kindness.
Just recently two officers from Tukwila, Washington have made national headlines, without ever compromising their identities.
The Tukwila Police Department shared a brief story describing how two officers spotted a child running through a park with dirty socks and a gash and thorn on the bottom of his foot.
These cops took one glimpse at the young boy and instantly realized they need to do something nice and intervene.
“Sooo…Sergeant Modest and Officer Bashful (names have been changed to protect their bashfulness) were patrolling on foot at Cascade View Park yesterday afternoon. They came across this guy running around in torn dirty socks and bleeding from a decent sized cut on the bottom of his foot. The sergeant cleaned up and patched his foot with his first aid kit. When asked where his shoes were, their new friend told them that he didn’t have any shoes because the pair he had was too small for his feet to fit in.”
“The sergeant ran out and grabbed a pair of shoes for him while the officer kept him and his friend’s company. He came back with not only a pair of shoes, but also with a bunch of popsicles because what isn’t better than a cold popsicle on a hot summer day?! The officer helped to tie his new friend’s shoes and they all enjoyed a popsicle together before parting ways.”
Who doesn’t enjoy a story to have a nice ending?
Once the story hit Facebook, people were in fact so touched that the post went viral with thousands of likes and shares.
Since the Tukwila PD were so delighted with the display of support, they posted this touching response:
“What our officers did is no different than what officers do daily all over the country. It is representative of the small acts of kindness that occur daily between police officers and members of the communities that they serve nationwide. A small gesture such as this one or the countless other gestures of kindness that officers do daily goes a long way towards building rapport and trust with every member of the community regardless of their socioeconomic status.”
Officers whare a great job “Modest” and “Bashful!”
Help us thank the men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives for ours every day and SHARE this post with others.
