Police Officer Steps In After Forgotten Child Is Left Alone On His Birthday. What He Does Next Will Make Your Day.
Yesterday Officer Robinson responded to a local elementary school for a child that was not picked up at the end of the school day. The parent is incarcerated and there were no other known family contacts. It was also the child’s birthday.
Thanks to the owners of our local McDonald’s, we were given free cheeseburger coupons to hand out in certain situations. Officer Robinson took the child for a meal at McDonald’s and a ride around in the police car for his birthday. Family was eventually located and the child was dropped off.
Thank you to community partners, like McDonald’s, that allow us to help out others in small ways during our interactions throughout the shifts.
Thank you to Officer Robinson for taking some extra time to celebrate the child’s birthday; we are proud to have him as part of the GBPD team!
