Officer Harrison spoke with a driver who was recently involved in a robbery.

Officials said the driver was struggling and frustrated, and went over to the pump to speak with Harrison.

Harrison learned that the driver had lost all of her credit cards and money after being robbed.


The driver had tried to pump gas in her car with a prepaid card, which kept getting declined.

Without hesitation, Harrison paid and pumped the driver’s gas for her, so she could get to work.

“Way to go Officer Harrison,” the police department said.
