Child safety is always top of mind for any parent. So when this Cedar Park police offer, who is also a father, pulled over a car with young children inside and no car seats, he was angry. But instead of giving the driver 3 citations, he and his fellow officer decided that handing out a ticket to the father was not the best solution.
Officer Hawkins recognized the father, who was stopped weeks earlier for another reason, and knew he was financially struggling. So, instead of giving this dad a ticket, the officers went back to the department and pooled their money with a few other officers to buy the family three new car seats.
