A Squad of 18 Bradenton Police Officers are assisting the Tampa Police Department by working the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
Several of the officers were working at a protest march when Sergeant Curtis Johnson noticed a little girl matching with her mother this week. The march spanned roughly twenty to thirty blocks through downtown Tampa at 4 p.m., while there was a 100-degree heat index.
Sergeant Johnson noticed the little girl crying because she was thirsty, so he shared his water with her.
"Sergeant Johnson's actions reflect the compassion and professionalism of the officers that are representing the City of Bradenton.," Captain Warren Merriman said.
