Watch The Lowell, Michigan, Police Get Into The Holiday Spirit
Lowell police officers started wearing body cameras on dispatches last October, and have since seen public complaints about the police decrease. This December, though, they came up with a new use for the cameras: Recording themselves on dispatches, giving Lowell residents exactly the presents they wanted for Christmas. Nearby officers were listening in on the dispatches, waiting for the residents to say what they still had to get for Christmas, then bought those items and ran them out to the cruiser.
It’s heartening to see a police department that cares, especially when, you know, everything is kind of terrible right now. But at least the Lowell PD seems to really care about their community, and that’s at least a little bit reassuring.
