The young girl’s mother wrote to RTV6 to share her positive experience with IMPD.
"The generosity, empathy and humanity these officers have shown us goes beyond their duties. I do not have enough word to express my gratitude for their incredible act of kindness and selflessness. Because of them my daughter's piggy bank will be full again, and she will have a wonderful Christmas,” the mother wrote to RTV6. “People need to know our officers are not heartless humans hiding behind badges. They are angels, they are heroes, they are sometimes a light in the darkness as they were for my daughter and I."
Romeril said she made a new friend that day and the two plan to keep in touch.
