A couple in their early 20's, with three small children were pulled over due to vehicle not having a hood, front or side bumpers, damaged windshield, and unrestrained children. The couple explained their vehicle had been stolen, and was just recovered by the police. They couldn't afford to fix it, and needed the vehicle to drive to work, as they lived paycheck to paycheck. They explained that their children's car seats were also stolen and were not recovered with the vehicle. The officer could have given the family a ticket. Instead, the officer placed a request to Angels on Patrol. AoP bought the family two car seats and paid for the parts they needed to make the car navigable. This small act by the officer prevented the family from losing their job and avoided an eviction.
With your support we're able to respond to officer requests as they encounter people in crisis. Your support makes this possible.
