FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Days before Thanksgiving, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel passed out turkeys to residents of Broward County.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office shared a video on Twitter, Tuesday, showing Sheriff Israel conducting traffic stops and surprising motorists.

Israel and other deputies also made appearances at the homes of several residents and surprised residents with turkeys and well-wishes for the holidays.

“We’re just trying to get the message out there that sometimes police do things I’m not even proud of, but 99 percent of them do it the right way like these folks” Israel said.
