A public safety officer from Emmett Township, Michigan, went beyond the call of duty on Saturday.
Emmett Township Public Safety Officer Ben Hall was on his patrol when he pulled a vehicle over for a traffic violation. When he made contact with the driver, he noticed a small child in the car who was wearing a seat belt but not in a child’s car seat.
The young mother told Officer Hall that she understood the importance of having the child in a car seat, but could not afford one because of her limited income at the time.
Rather than giving the young mother a traffic ticket, Officer Hall had the mother pull into a Walmart parking lot, where he went inside and purchased a car seat to keep her daughter safe in.
