    Our officers encounter need every day and we should not expect them to use their own money to address
    these problems. Wouldn't it be a great deal better if our leaders would create small funds, vouchers and
    coupon-gifts that officers could dispense @ their discretion; of course with some modest oversight to prevent
    abuse?

    Would our communities, churches, non-profits and tax payers not be willing to run donation campaigns to such?

    I'm not talking about big sums. Let's just find a way to make it possible for our officers to hand out
    a coupon for a meal, or some clothes, or maybe even a sum between 10 and 100 bucks as they encounter the
    needy while doing their job.

    All you guys who post here that you are church or community leaders, all such who read a thread like this,
    you can make it happen.

    Our community has a successful food pantry, shelter, and "free clinic." The same charitable mechanisms could be used
    to make it possible for officers to help, without hurting their own families.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Great story if every one did something kind for some one else this would be a much better world to live in. It doesn't have to be money even something as simple as holding a door open or letting someone infront of you in the store when they onlu have a couple items. Somewhere people forgot how to be respectful.

    Great, I hope the Officer rubs off on the rest of them. The few that need it.

    Awesome! And I think if he can show that he renewed his registration within a certain time period, they drop the citation.

    I think that a great story. These LEOs have a tough job and hear a lot of public excuses but there are a few that can see through that and understand whats real. My hats off to you sir.

    P.S. Merry Christmas to everyone.
