Palestine police were out in force on patrol Wednesday night, but for some drivers, handed out gift cards instead of citations as part of giving back to the community for the holiday.
The body cam footage shows Officer Yvette Durbin handing a gift card to an unsuspecting driver instead of a ticket Wednesday night.
Chief Andy Harvey said they handed four $25 gift cards to unsuspecting drivers throughout the evening.
“People are taken back by it though and officers enjoy doing it,” Chief Harvey said.
Watch out though, because Harvey also said they plan to hand out more during Christmas!
