Officer returns to the scene for cookies

At a council booth in front of one of our local grocery stores, we saw a police car pull up next to us and out come two officers, walking casually. Georgie (first year Brownie) asked if they would like some cookies and to take a picture with her. One officer replied “we gotta go help someone, but then we’ll be back.”

Time goes by.  More and more police cars come. At one point, there were five police cars! Then, an ambulance! One man was walked out and they helped him into the ambulance. I told Georgie that they may not be able to come back and the way things were looking she said she understood. More time goes by. Some officers leave. Well, about an hour and a half later the last three officers bring another man out in handcuffs, They pause to tell her they hadn’t forgotten their promise and would be back after putting this guy in the back of the car. Sure enough, five minutes later one officer came back and said, “A promise is a promise!”

He took a picture with her and got a package of Samoas.
