As a random act of kindness, 5-year-old William Evertz from Winslow, New Jersey used 7 months worth of his allowance to treat the Winslow Police Department to a healthy lunch. In return, the officers gave William a day he would never forget by making him an honarary police officer. The officers also gave William a tour of the station, a goodie bag, his very own badges, and a ride home in a squad car.
