Officer Shocked When Little Boy Walks Into Department Carrying...

A young boy from Florida is being praised for his heart-warming support of America’s law enforcement officers. Tyler Carach, a 9-year-old from Escambia County, Florida, has started an incredible campaign for America’s police officers. Dubbed ‘I Donut Need a Reason to Thank Cops’, Tyler’s campaign aims to show his support and gratitude towards law enforcement officers by giving a donut to every cop in America.

Tyler’s original campaign was launched in his home county when he arrived at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, delivering 35 dozen donuts, along with candy and coffees. Speaking about the incident, Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan says: “He’s one of the best supporters and biggest cheerleaders of law enforcement.”

Tyler was originally motivated to launch his campaign when he was 8-years-old and found himself in a convenience store with his mother and four Escambia County Deputy Sheriffs. Without any urging, Tyler, using his own money, bought the cops mini donuts and coffee. The touching incident was the impetus for Tyler’s campaign and his mother, Sheena, supported his generous endeavor, telling him to “take it as far as he can take it.”

Sheena previously served as a police officer in Virginia, telling Pensacola News Journal that Tyler started becoming interested in law enforcement when she began telling him stories about her past life as a police officer.

However, Tyler’s campaign was not over and, on his 9th birthday, the young hero travelled to the Atlanta Police Department to give away 2000 donuts and host ‘Birthday with the Blue’, an event sponsored by Krispy Kreme. Sheena spoke about her son’s latest idea, saying: “With Tyler’s birthday being that weekend, he wanted nothing more than to spend a day thanking first responders for their commitment to protecting and serving their community. Tyler has done many events since launching his campaign, but this is the most donuts we will have donated so far and we are thrilled to honor these men and women.”

An emergency services Instagram account, ‘atlantafirerescuedepartment’, posted a picture of Tyler with a firefighter and police officer, captioning the image: “Thank you Tyler for coming to support @atlantapolice and @atlantafirerescuedepartment. 'I #DONUT need a reason to support a police officer.' We are all proud of you. Happy Birthday also!”

However, Tyler, or ‘Donut Boy’ as he is now being called, has more birthday celebrations in store, departing on a 6-week tour across the country’s police departments. Tyler and his family have already secured 5000 donuts for the New York Police Department. After his 6-week trip, Tyler is hoping to have donated more than 10,000 donuts to cops across the country.

"They keep us safe. They're my best friends and they need to be reminded that we still care,” says Tyler. Unsurprisingly, the young boy aspires to join law enforcement when he is older, saying: "My uncle is a cop and my mom used to be a cop. I want to be a K-9 officer."
