A heartfelt message by the Thomasville Police Department encouraging people to do good to others is going viral after their own officers put it into practice.
On Monday afternoon, the department shared the act of kindness Officer Bryan Williams did. TPD said Officer Williams bought a citizen a tent from out of pocket. He did it because he wanted the man to be warm and dry from the cold and rainy weather.
“Every one of us has the potential to do something meaningful for someone else. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it doesn’t have to be extravagant,” TPD wrote in the Facebook post. “A gift, an act of service, a kind word. It just comes from the heart.”
The police department posted about it to encourage the community to think about how they can give back to someone in need. This post has been shared and commented on hundreds of times, “The citizen gave us permission to post this photo to inspire others to think, “what can I do?” the department wrote. “The desire to serve is at the heart of policing.”
