Police Officer’s Reward Boy in Most Amazing Way

Last week, I asked for help in rewarding my grandson.

Bricen has autism, and works hard at controlling his emotions, and making good decisions.

He receives therapy which promotes positive programs. A part of Bricen’s therapy is earning tokens.

Over a three week period, Bricen earned 75 tokens, and his one and only wish was to have a soda with a policeman at McDonalds.

Officer Chris Vines, from the Sumner County Sheriff Office, responded saying he’d like to meet Bricen.

He shared Bricen’s story with fellow officers at the Sheriff Office, along with the Gallatin Police Department, the Hendersonville Police Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Officer Vines then worked with Gallatin’s McDonalds, ensuring there’d be enough space.

When Bricen walked in McDonalds, over 18 officers from the four agencies started clapping.

Bricen was immediately made a honorary deputy for the day and received his name tag.

The next half hour Bricen spent talking to the officers, receiving additional “swag”, and eating pancakes.

As we walked outside McDonalds, thanking the officers, there was one more surprise.

Officer Vines gave Bricen a ride home in the front seat of his police car!

Bricen won’t stop talking about how he made good choices and earned a police party with a lot, a lot, a lot of policemen, and rode in a police car that does have a radio that plays music (one of his burning questions).

It’s a day he’ll never forget.

Thank you to each agency that allowed officers time to honor Bricen, to each officer that attended his “police party”, to McDonalds for ensuring we had space, and especially to Officer Chris Vines.

None of this would have happened without 75 tokens and Officer Chris Vines.
