Police officers usually use the computers in their patrol cars to communicate with one another about their jobs.
On Monday night, three officers used it to share with colleagues an especially touching encounter.
“We were just in IHOP having dinner and getting ready to pay when our waitress told us that someone took care of our check,” the message read. “We asked her who so we could thank them, and she pointed to a young girl who couldn’t have been more than 15 years old. When we left we stopped to talk to her. She introduced herself as KayLeigh Nava, Hank’s daughter. She thanked us with tears in her eyes for what we do. Just thought everybody should know that.”
