Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.
The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.
But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.
Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.
“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.
“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”
These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.
Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.
We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.
Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”
UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”
ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”
Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.
These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.
Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.
Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.
Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
