Police Officer Hides Money In A Ticket

Working at an Atlanta GM Car Dealership, we are accustomed to the, “I got a ticket” story. I think I can safely say that we’ve all been pulled over by a police officer and thought, “Why is he pulling ME over?”. Too often I think that the police who are out there to protect and serve are too often the target of misguided anger when they are just doing their job. I mean, really, you probably deserved that ticket.

However, there are some officers who go above and beyond the call of duty, like an unnamed officer with the Plano Texas Police Department did. After pulling a man over for an expired registration the officer, appropriately, gave him a ticket for not keeping up with his responsibilities as a car owner. However, the story just starts there. In the ticket he issued, he also hid a $100 bill. Apparently after hearing the man’s story regarding his reasons for not being able to afford to have his registration renewed , the officer was moved enough to give the man money from his own pocket. In the officer’s words, “he needed it more than I did”.

Not only was this a very generous act of kindness by a uniformed officer, It was one the officer wanted no recognition for. He was simply being kind. Something I think we all need to be a little more of.

Check out this wonderful story below:

I think we should all take away what the true meaning of generosity is from this officer. You can do your job and be a human being too! I think that you’ll find many in our Atlanta Police would do the same, given the opportunity. Kudos to the Plano Texas Police Department for turning out such fine examples of, not just Police Officers, but human beings as well.

Of course, your Atlanta GM dealer lives daily by the social virtue of, “Being Kind”,  if we didn’t we could never have had our motto be “Your Car Dealer For Life”. Come in and experience The Southtowne General Motors Superstore for yourself!
