Willingboro Police Officer Brandon Thomas faced a situation that may have resulted in headlines and even a possible arrest before this pandemic and subsequent shutdown.

Finding a kid alone in a car parked at a local shopping center, the officer first checked to make sure the kid was OK and then went into the store to find the adult driver. The woman was picking up flowers for her mother and didn’t have a mask for her child. Instead of giving her a ticket, the officer went back to his patrol car and brought her two masks that were given to him by his family.

Thank you Officer Thomas for stepping up and being willing to sacrifice your own safety to help others. You are a shining example of the incredible job done by police officers throughout New Jersey.
