Billings police surprise drivers with turkeys, not tickets


The Billings Police Department surprised 30 drivers on Wednesday morning when they gave out turkeys instead of tickets! 

Purchasing the turkeys was possible thanks to an anonymous generous donation of Sam’s Club gift cards. 

“It was cool to see the surprised looks on their faces. They were really thankful. We had a couple of people get out and give hugs and there were tears. It was a great day,” said Billings Police Sgt. Jeff Stovall. 

The Billings Police Department values community engagement opportunities and looks for ways to give back. 

“Our community supports us so much, so it’s important we also give back to the community. Any time we have an opportunity to do it, it bridges that gap between law enforcement and our community. We’re humans too, we have feelings, we care about our community just like you care about us,” Sgt. Stovall said. 

From the City of Billings and Billings Police Department, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
