Officers Give Kids an Early Christmas While Parents are Incarcerated

During an average night on the Oklahoma City traffic beat, police officers Cook and Vernier pulled a woman over for suspicious driving. They realized she was under the influence and arrested her for DUI and child endangerment.

The police went to the family's home and found out that a little boy and girl were terrified that their mom was taken away--especially with only a week to go before Christmas. The officer asked the 7-year-old girl for her date of birth.

She then recounted that she didn't get to have a party or gifts. She said she "got no presents this year because mommy is broke and daddy is in jail."

The cops looked over the home and noticed there was no Christmas tree or decorations. They decided to help in any way they can. Cook and Vernier took the kids in the car with them and drove to the nearest Walmart.

They let them pick out presents, which they paid for out of their own pockets. After the shopping trip, they went out for a bite to eat. They then took the brother and sister to a shelter to sleep that night.

Cops go above the call of duty for children in need.
