Birthday Festivities

Police work of a different kind

Tracey Good News

Imagine how this mom felt when her car was broken into and robbed. It gets worse. Inside of the vehicle was her son’s birthday present and she couldn’t afford to replace it. 

Enter Super Hero, Sheriff’s Officer Derek Pratico of Jacksonville, Florida. After taking the report of the burglary, he had an idea. The next day, using his own money, he purchased a birthday cake and card for the little boy, as well as a $100 gift card to help the mother. 

Thank you, Officer Pratico!
