Cop told to step into school’s office where they reveal video footage about him

September 10th, 2020

Officer Mitch is as intimidating as they come but he’s actually quite gentle and compassionate.

At least that’s what the students of Heritage High School in Brentwood, California are saying. In fact, they have nothing but nice words to say about the police officer.

Cliche as this sounds, the officer truly does go above and beyond the call of duty.

In fact, his kindness has made such an impact on those around him that the students see him more as a father figure than an imposing law enforcement officer.

Officer Mitch was always diligent and upright.

From the beginning, he promised himself he would never act like a jerk, even in terrible situations. That… and how he’d never want to lose control and get fat.

He’s still in his best physical shape and he’s still an awesome police officer, which means he also deserves to be applauded for keeping both promises.

The friendly police officer did more than just carry out his everyday duties, too.

He ended up mentoring quite a number of kids and encouraging everyone to strive hard and do their best.

He also has a practical and uncomplicated philosophy: “There’s always a good side to somebody.”

There was one incident that proved the efficacy of his positive outlook. Officer Mitch once reached out to a student struggling with anger issues and helped him manage his emotions in a healthier way: by lifting weights with the student and highlighting how instrumental it is in releasing pent-up anger.

In fact, there are countless stories of how wonderfully Officer Mitch helped students get past their struggles.

He never knew how impactful his presence and efforts were until the students decided to surprise him one day.

Part of the plan was for Officer Mitch and the principal to review a so-called disturbing video posted by a female student named Sienna. The script involved misconduct at a party, and the student and principal played their roles convincingly. In fact, Sienna even cried as the principal proceeded to tell Officer Mitch about the “issue.”

But when it was time to review the video, it wasn’t about students partying at all.

It was student after student recounting the ways Officer Mitch helped them and changed their lives.

The gentle but tough guy sure knows how to keep his composure!

There was no breaking down and crying, or reaching in for a hug. Nope. The calm and collected police officer was definitely cool throughout it all. Pretty impressive.

Touched and still in disbelief, Officer Mitch thought the video was already the best part but the mastermind behind the surprise informed him that there was something more.

So they led Officer Mitch outside where he was met with hundreds of students eagerly waiting to thank him.
