Restaurant Gets Caught On Camera Treating Officers Like This

With all the stress being put on police after the assassination of officers in Baton Rouge and Dallas, one Florida restaurant wanted to extend some comfort the best way they know how… with food.

So, the restaurant is offering free meals to Auburndale police officers.

"With the recent activities going on, I just want to show some kind of appreciation to the officers here," Lisa Hirakis, owner of the Auburndale Main Street Diner, told Fox 13. "It breaks my heart with everything going on; it really does. There's no excuse for it."

Some officers are taking Hirakis up on her offer and enjoying meals on the house at Auburndale Main Street Diner.

"It's nice to have the support to validate that people appreciate us. Sometimes we forget," said Deputy Chief of the Auburndale Police Department Andy Ra. "We didn't sign up for the job for people to tell us all the time how good we are, how much they appreciate us, but we don't get that a lot."

Hirakis fed her local law enforcement officers throughout the entire month of July
