Seeing a cop in front of your door may be a little alarming. There are moments, even when you did not do anything within the realm of the word “crime”, you still feel nervous for no exact reason. Well, we surely have seen more than a couple of movies wherein cops arrest people, literally who did not commit any kind of crime.
Well, when cops arrest criminals, you can see that sense of fulfillment in them, that finally, one part of their job is over. However, they Shawnee PD also experience that kind of fulfillment doing “this”. Apparently, they have started a secret Santa program three years in a row already which aims to give a hundred dollar to those people who may really need some held. Luckily, they police department have been blessed to have an anonymous donor and sponsor of the project wherein they have received 30 thousand dollars to push through the program.
Officer Crystal Herber was so blessed to be a part of the program. She has handed 600 dollars to the people whom she really thought would be needing. This particular video hit many people with the reality, that we all, at one point, can really help others. She genuinely said:
“We have a job that’s not always viewed as the easiest of the best, not everybody likes when we walk up to their door.”
But walking into the door of people who need help, and that at that particular moment, you can do something for them, it means a lot to Officer Herber. The very thought of doing something for people even if you are not being paid for it is a true vocation. She is just one of the several cops who knocks the door of strange people, handing them a hundred thousand dollars. And she was richly blessed to have been part of it. After the door has opened, she even joked, saying:
“You are not in any trouble.”
After that, she handed the money to the woman who opened the door. Her response was short but so sincere:
“Thank you so much,” she said. And that probably is the perfect consolation for this Santa program. Part from it, she was probably thanking that anonymous person who made the program possible.
