Police block motorists’ roads for a Thanksgiving surprise instead of a ticket

While many security checks go on without media coverage, this week the Mesa Police Department in Arizona posted photos of people being pulled over for various violations and was then given an unusual ticket.

It’s all part of an awareness campaign…that police have for their community. A few days before Thanksgiving, armed with a frozen turkey fridge, Officer Jason Flam was ready to make everyone’s day.

That’s because the department started a “Turkeys not Tickets” show – it was exactly what it sounded like – at the suggestion of a commander.

Flam illustrated how it was done for KSAZ-TV, who was with him one day when he was in traffic Turkey. After pulling someone over, he approached them and explained the reason for stopping.

“When you got your turn, you made a wide turn, and we had to stay in our lane,” Flam explained, before returning to his car to take the heavy penalty.

For most driver, it was a shocking event to see the police return to their windows with Thanksgiving center.

“I thought it was a nice gesture,” said Darryl, from North Dakota. “I was completely surprised.”

“Thank you very much,” said another, who wished to remain anonymous and already has a turkey but wanted to recognize the kindness. “It was a really generous offer, I was really shocked by it… but I really want you to pass it on.”

Flam caught a driver, Mike Ormerod, just in time.

“Actually, I was on my way to Costco to pick up some Thanksgiving repairs, so this saved me a couple of bucks,” Ormerod said.

“I think it’s a great idea,” he added of the show. “I told the officer there, that I think over the last couple of years, police officers in general have had a bad rap, and they have a hard job, and I think it’s important that they get credit for putting it out there every day. ”

The exercise also benefits the participating officers as they get to see people’s reactions to receiving a surprise gift.

Flam said: ‘A woman with this infectious laugh just started laughing, but tears flowed again. “And then the other man just hung his head and cried, I don’t think they could afford the turkey, so it worked.

“I don’t think we’ve understood how important this is going to be.”
