On September 9, 2022, seven-year-old MJ and his five-year-old brother, Max saw Sergeant Cody Skinner, Corporal Danny Swan, and Officer Jasmine Jaimes near the Hungry Howie’s in the Imperial Plaza in Auburndale. Mom says her two boys, “really wanted to say hi to them.” Mom encouraged the boys to approach the officers, and when they did, the officers embraced them, gave them sticker badges, and seatbelt ticket books. Max was even allowed to sit in patrol car and push the siren button! According to mom, MJ wants to be a police officer when he grows up, and when they arrived home from meeting the officers, MJ “immediately geared up and has been following me around the house trying to give me tickets for my every move” introducing himself as being the Auburndale Police! Mom wrote us a thank you note on Facebook Messenger thanking the officers for being so kind and welcoming to her boys.Now for the rest of the story...the reason the officers were at Imperial Plaza is because just moments before the boys approached, Officer Jaimes had just completed several rounds of CPR on a woman and saved her life. This is the job of an Auburndale Police Officer; intense life or death situations one moment and embracing our citizens’ children the next. The pictures in this post are of MJ and Max touring the Auburndale Police Department with Sergeant Skinner, Corporal Swan, and Officer Jaimes. ... See MoreSee Less
