Sussex Police has thanked a schoolgirl who gifted two of their officers a goody bag after spotting them on patrol last weekend.
The schoolgirl, called Jessica, had drawn two ‘thin blue line’ emblems on both of the bags, which also had handwritten messages on them.
The message on one of the bags read: ‘Dear police officer, I hope you like the goodie bag to keep you going today, love Jessica x’.
The second bag’s handwritten message read: ‘Dear police officer you are my hero, love Jessica’.
Responding to the kind gesture, sussexpoliceforce wrong on their Instagram page:
