Getting pulled over by the police usually causes a lot of anxiety for drivers. 

In one state, drivers are instead getting a surprise from officers. 

This week, police in Kentucky doled out some holiday help. 

The Warren County sheriff’s office received a generous donation of $10,000.

The donor’s only request was to give the money to those who need it most. 

Officers pulled over drivers and gave them $100. 

Some people who were pulled over had been going through tough times and said the gift was a big help. 

With Christmas right around the corner, people may be afraid of the thought of receiving a traffic ticket, and having to give up some of their Christmas savings, but a traffic stop like this can turn all those feelings around. 

A kind act like this does not just make the drivers happy, but the officers as well. 

“I can speak for all the staff at Warren County Sheriff’s Office, it is a privilege for us to be able to do this,” Sergeant Curtis Hargett said. “It’s a blessing for us just as much as it is for the people receiving this. We are very pleased to be a part of this.”
