Sometimes the duty to protect and serve means going the extra mile. A police officer in Illinois stopped a pizza delivery man for cutting through a parking lot to avoid a red light and found that the driver had drug paraphernalia in the car. After arresting the delivery man and a passenger in the car, the officer noticed a pizza in the passenger seat. He then decided to go a few extra yards and make the delivery because the customer only lived a few blocks from the police station. The customer was surprised when a police car pulled up and relieved to find that the officer was only bringing them their dinner. Police Chief Jeff Burgner said, “We try to do all we can to help our residents, but I think this is the first time we’ve delivered a pizza.” --Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell.
