A Cop Was Approached By A Woman At The Store, He Never Expected What She Said

 A Cop Was Approached By A Woman At The Store, He Never Expected What She Said

A heartwarming story was recently shared by a police officer on Facebook.

The officer describes an encounter with an elderly woman while picking up a few items from the local grocery store. It was posted to the “Police Lives Matter” Facebook page and you can read the post below.

I was in the grocery store picking up some milk while in uniform. I usually arrive home around 7:15 AM which also happens to be about the time when my two children, ages six and nine, are waking up. It has become standard routine that they have a hearty breakfast with me before they have to head out the door by 8 A.M. in order to be at school by 8:30.

As I stood there and contemplated whether or not I should purchase the 1% or 2% milk, an elderly woman walked up next to me and said “excuse me, young man, could I trouble you for a hug” and, of course, I could not deny it. She then proceeded to thank me for keeping her city safe and then handed me a piece of paper, folded in half, and requested that I not open it until I had walked by to my patrol car.

Inside the folded piece of paper was a voucher for unlimited free hugs and coffee for all first responders and it listed her address at the local retirement home.

This is why I love my job.

This officer’s post is sure to make someone’s day. If it brought a smile to your face, please share this story and spread good cheer on your Facebook wall.
