King County Sheriff's Officer helps burglary victims have a Merry Christmas 1On Dec. 2, 2015, King County Sheriff’s Officer MPO White responded to a burglary call in the Boulevard Park area, near S. 112 and 1st Ave South.  White investigated the burglary, but there were no leads. Among items taken from the victims were all the Christmas presents for the family’s 7 and 4-year old children. The Grinch-like burglars also took most of the kid’s toys from their rooms. The victims had limited means, and this burglary was devastating to them. MPO White was concerned the family would have no Christmas as a result of this burglary. He discussed this issue with his family after he got home from work. They decided to go shopping, replacing the kids Christmas presents to assure they have a Christmas. MPO White and his family coordinated with the parents and are delivering the presents on Christmas day. “This is truly the spirit of Christmas and service all wrapped up together,” Sgt. Cindi West told The B-Town Blog. “I know MPO White did not do this for recognition, but his kindness and compassion are deserving.” West added:

“While the media is full of stories related to inappropriate conduct by police officers, we all know the hearts of our officers are often full of warmth, love and compassion.”
