Good Day Good Deed: TPD officer passes out July 4th treats

A small act of kindness can go a long way.

Tampa police Officer Rachel Strelchuck probably knows something about that. She was photographed on the 4th of July as she handed out candy to families in the neighborhood she routinely patrols.

A local in the area was proud of her kind gesture, and sent the photo to FOX 13.

Officer Strelchuck later said she handed out the candy because she loves kids, and wanted to do something to make their holiday a little extra special. 

Way to go Officer Strelchuck!
