Officer Ben Hall got a call reporting a child riding in a car with out a car seat. When Officer Hall arrived on the scene he met a struggling mom Alexis DeLorenzo and her five-year-old little girl.
Officer Hall said, â€œWhen I spoke to her, she was very forthcoming and knew that the child should be in a booster seat. She admitted that she was wrong and that she had recently fallen on hard times.â€
This blessing of a police officer had compassion on the young mother and instead of writing her a ticket he took her to the nearest Wal-Mart and bought a booster seat for her little girl.
â€œIt was the easiest 50 bucks I ever spent,â€ said Officer Hall. â€œItâ€™s something that anybody in the same position, in our position, would do. I in no way, shape or form expect to be paid back. It is a â€˜pay it forwardâ€™ situation completely.â€
Alexis said that the compassionate officer gave her so much hope in such a time of need. She also wants to â€œpay it forwardâ€ too in order to be a blessing to someone else.
â€œFor a police officer that could have just given me a ticket, and gotten me in a whole lot of trouble, he, out of the kindness of his own heart and out of his own pockets, did something for me and my family that Iâ€™m never gonna forget,â€ Alexis said.
â€œHe did his job and above and beyond that, just to protect a little girl and to help a family that canâ€™t help themselves right now.â€
