- A family had a party for their daughter who graduated from university, and one neighbour called the police on them
- When the officers arrived, they told the guests to remove their cars from the roadside and asked to pray for the graduate
- Social media users praised the police officers for their kind gesture and asked more cops to emulate him
A neighbour who could not stand the noise coming from a partying home is reported to have called the police officers to shut the celebrations down.
One family member shared on Facebook about how what transpired after the cops showed up left her speechless and emotional.
This is what she shared on Facebook:
"Someone called the police during Timbre’s graduation party tonight! The police came and asked some of the party guests to move their cars out of the road. Before they left, one of the officers asked to see the graduate!

"I was kind of sceptical at first, but Lyric went and got her! He wished her well, and asked her if he could pray with her! This made my heart smile! Officer Covington of the Aberdeen Police Department! We need more of him!"
