Hoptown 12 13HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (12/13/17) — Anonymous donors gave Hopkinsville Police Department $1,000 for the agency to hand out to 10 people at random — all in the “spirit of giving.”

HPD welcomed the idea in making a few people “happy” in the city this week. Instead of handing out tickets, Officer Mike Atkins did as the couple requested and gave away the money during Monday traffic stops throughout Hopkinsville.

The couple told police they saw other law enforcement agencies doing similar acts of kindness during highway patrols, and “they wanted the same thing to happen to citizens here in Hopkinsville,” HPD indicated on its Facebook page post.

The agency said it is grateful for the generous donation, adding Atkins enjoyed handing out money in lieu of citations.
