Credit: The Press of Atlantic City
On May 31, 2014, Galloway Officers were contacted to respond to an area store parking lot where they were met by three small children ages 6, 9 and 13 along with their father. 

The three children located $180.00 in cash and immediately laughed with each other about things they would like to buy with the money. After speaking with their Dad they decided to contact the police and turn over the money in case someone had reported that they lost it. 

"I have been a police officer for 15-years and as soon as I read the Patrol officers report as the Property Supervisor, I immediately reached out to the father and thanked him for teaching his children to do the right thing" said Acting Captain Donna Higbee.
