Florida Police Officers' Act of Kindness After Arresting Driver

A group of Florida police officers went above and beyond the call of duty with their unexpected act of kindness after arresting a delivery driver.

Every day, there is some new kind of technological advancement. Technology has improved so much that we can do several things with a few quick clicks and swipes on cell phones. You can have someone pick you up, take you to the airport and even have your favorite fast-food meal dropped off at your doorstep. 

Now, it’s even possible to have groceries, all bagged and ready to be consumed, at your door in an hour or so. For someone who may not be able to get out, that can be a lifesaver. But what happens if the person on the other end, the individual picking up and delivering those items, runs into an unfortunate encounter with law enforcement?

Well, that’s precisely what happened to one woman in Florida. While heading to her residence, the driver delivering her groceries was stopped and arrested by police officers. Luckily, officers went out of their way, above and beyond the call of duty, and completed the delivery. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, a female police officer knocks on the woman’s door and quickly and succinctly explains the situation.

“Hello, you ordered groceries?” the officer asks.

The woman in the house responds, yes, that she did, in fact, order items from the grocery store.

“Your driver got arrested, so we’re delivering your groceries,” the officer says.

Then, one by one, officers carrying bags of food enter the house, making sure to complete the delivery. 

About halfway through the clip, the female officer explains, “We didn’t want your groceries to go to waste.”

Showing someone kindness doesn’t require much time or any talent. All that is needed is care and concern for the well-being of others.

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.”
