I'd just bought a car charger—the one that plugs into your cigarette lighter—for my first 8-hour drive to visit my girlfriend at her college that weekend. Without it, I wouldn't have been able to use my phone's GPS for longer than a few hours before it died—that'd leave me lost, at night, in a state I'd never been in. For me, using paper directions is just begging to get into an accident.

So anyway, I'd bought the charger, and I was driving home when I realized, "Hey... do I even have a cigarette lighter to plug this thing into?" On an empty road, I looked down into the center panel and found nothing. The dash, nothing. I looked deeper, above where I kept my change, no—ope, I'm driving on the wrong side of the road. Begging to get in an accident. Heart jumping, I correct my path, catch my breath, and decide to look on the way home. Then I saw lights.

I got pulled over and I deserved it. I also had points on my license for a massive speeding ticket in a speed trap...any more points—for, say, wreckless driving—and I wouldn't be able to make this trip, or, like, drive at all. I told the officer the charger thing—that I made a dumb mistake checking to see if my purchase was worth it. He looked puzzled. He took my information and was heading back to his car when I called out again and further explained the situation. That I was making a big trip, and that if I got any points on my license, that would not happen. Also that I was an idiot. He stood there and thought, then went back to the car—I'm assuming to look my record up.

When he returned, he let me go. "Have a good trip. Just be careful."

Oh, also, turns out I did have a cigarette lighter.

Was hitch hiking at night and a officer said he'd give me ride to where I could pick another. Drove to the city limits, pointed at some lights in the distance and told me it was a truck stop. He said it's 11 miles away. Have a nice evening.

1968 - Not what a polce officer did for me. I was the police officer in this case. I was waved down on a freeway south of Salinas, Ca. at about 0100 houurs by a young male Mexican. Neiither my partner or myself spoke Spanish, but he was able to get through to us that his wife/girlfriend was having a baby and they needed help. The young man directed us to their home and I saw the baby was already crowning. I caught the baby boy and laid it on the mother's stomach. An ambulance showed up in a few minutes and completed the birth. A few weeks later I found a letter in my office mail from the young father, he had someone write it for him. Basically the letter thanked me for delivering his son; and to honor me he was naming his son after me. My name is Edward Thomas Curtis and the baby’s name is "Eduardo Tomas Cortez”. One of the nicest "Thank You" notes I ever received.

I was riding down the 101EB around Kanan and my engine just...stopped. Luckily I was in the right lane, so I switched on my Hazards, pulled over onto the shoulder. As I checked the gauges, I realised I had run it right out of gas. I got out, opened the trunk, found my one-gallon carrier and prepared to hike, but a car pulled up behind me; I saw it was a cop. He hopped out and waved, and asked me what was wrong. I blushed and told him, and then said I was going to walk to the next offramp (which we could see maybe 200 meters ahead, and get gas from the Exxon at the corner (which we could also see). He said, "How about if I just push you?" I looked at his car and saw it had a rubber-fronted pusher grid on front, and replied, "Wow...that'd be great. What do I do?" "It's two easy rights. Put it in Neutral, leave your flashers on, and don't stop at the light to turn. I'll time it so you have the green, and push you around the corner at the ramp top. When you get near the station, I'll stop, and you can just glide in. Are you comfortable doing that?" "Uh...sure! Thanks!" I jumped back in my car, and he did just what he said. He pulled up alongside me once I got to the pump, and I waved and started to go over and thank him, but he just waved and smiled and drove off. I never felt like I had a chance to properly thank him, which was something of a disappointment. So I recount the story here; maybe he'll see it and nod and smile. Thank you, Officer. You really put the Serve in "To Protect and Serve."

It was 1967 and a hell of a snowstorm hit the New York City, and surrounding areas. The regular scrossing guard who also worked for the NYPD had coalled in sick. So I showed up on schedule and I see 2 police cars parked on either side of Winchester Blvd. So as I waited for passersby, inc. fellow schoolmates, to show up, I was allowed to sit in the back seat (NYPD has always had 2 officers in the front.)
