The Florence Police Department is recognizing an officer for an act of kindness.

Chief Ron Tyler received a phone call from a citizen wanting to discuss "the conduct of an officer," according to the department's Facebook page. He said he was pleasantly surprised to hear the details after expecting a complaint.

The caller said she was in line at Panera Bread to order breakfast Tuesday morning. She was behind a patrol car driven by officer Kristi Colburn.

The caller said as she pulled up to the window, the cashier told her she was a "victim of a random act of kindness." The cashier went on to explain that the officer ahead of her in line had paid for her breakfast.

Although the officer did it anonymously and without recognition, the chief said her random act of kindness deserves attention.
