Officer takes child to McDonald's after not being picked up from school on birthday. Police Offices do not get the credit they deserve, they serve their communities selflessly and in ways we never know of.

Too many stories these days reflect Police in unsettling and unflattering situations. I am going by what I know to be true. I have volunteered and trained with our local Police Department. I have gone on several ride alongs with our Officers and have seen first hand how they protect and interact with the community. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the men and women who leave their families everyday not knowing if they will return. And selfless acts as this Police performed for this child happen everyday across America without recognition.
