Officer’s Unexpected Act of Kindness in Gloucester Twp. Goes Viral

Gloucester Township

A typical Friday for a 23-year-old expecting waitress in Gloucester Township turned out to be an unforgettable day thanks to an anonymous officer’s act of kindness.

Courtney English, who is nearly eight months pregnant with her first child, was working the lunch crowd at the Lamp Post Diner, when she began talking to one of the customers about her pregnancy.

According to Brian Cadigan, Courtney’s dad, a Voorhees Township officer appears to have heard the conversation his daughter was having with the customer and when it was time to pay for his bill, left his daughter a $100 tip on his $8.75 check.

Courtney however, didn’t learn of the act of kindness until after the officer left, not giving her a chance to thank him for his generosity.

Brian took it a step further and share the moving story on social media in hopes of sharing the officer’s kindness and generosity.

“I don't know you Mr. Police Officer, but you made my little girl cry, and made her year. Thank you, I always had the utmost respect for officers, but you went above and beyond not just an officer, but a beautiful human being. God Bless.”
