Police Officer Shows The Love of Jesus to Domestic Violence Victim and Her Child


What a great story out of Maryland to start our day with! This is from the Prince George’s County Police Facebook page:

One of our District I patrol officers has reinforced the PGPD’s pledge to not only protect citizens, but serve them as well. On Wednesday morning, around 8:00 am, Corporal Che’ Atkinson noticed a woman sitting in the lobby of our District I station in Hyattsville. She had a small child with her and several bags. The woman told the corporal she was doing okay, yet the situation still bothered Corporal Atkinson. He continued to talk to the woman who soon told the officer she was a victim of domestic violence and had recently become homeless. She had come to the police station because she had nowhere else to go. Corporal Atkinson immediately set out to get the woman and her one-year-old daughter assistance from local resources. He was also able to find a distant relative who planned to pick up the woman and child. On Thursday morning, Corporal Atkinson was surprised to see them still sitting in the station lobby. It turned out the family members wouldn’t be able to pick up the mother and daughter until Friday. He also learned the two hadn’t eaten in days. With his own money, Corporal Atkinson rented the woman and her child a hotel room. He found a child car seat and put it in his cruiser in order to safely transport the little girl to the hotel. He also bought them food and drinks. We wish this mother and daughter well in the future. MORE HERE
