Two Brevard County, Florida officers are being showered in praise by online commenters after they helped a family that was having a rough time.
The deputies of Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Sean Cronin and Anthony Gonnelly, saw that the mother and her family were down on their luck during a minor traffic violation stop. The deputies knew they wanted to help the family out in some way.
The two officers contacted the Community Services Team to help them get a car seat and buy groceries for the family. Two employees when grocery shopping and helped source a car seat.
Later that day, the deputies showed up at the family's door with the car seat and groceries. While the seat had been a donation, the officers paid for the groceries themselves.
