After one teen was arrested for underage drinking on a Florida beach during spring break, her mom did something unexpected - she wrote the local sheriff a thank you note. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office received the anonymous note and shared it on their Facebook page.
"The arrest scared the HELL out of her and I'm hoping she learned her lesson,” the letter reads. “The reason that I am sending this is that every officer that I talked to or that I could hear in the background talking to her was so nice.”
The mom praises the officers for being respectful and reassuring her that her daughter would return home safely, which was a huge comfort since she was hundreds of miles away. "In this day, 'cops' are getting a bad rap,” she writes. “So, I wanted to say 'thank you.'"
