POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Drivers expecting a ticket after getting pulled over instead got a welcomed surprise.

On Thursday and Friday last week, deputies with the Polk County Sheriff office were able to put smiles on the faces of unsuspecting drivers. The deputies were led by deputy Rey Davalos in handing out turkeys that were bought by the Polk County Police Officer Association.

The officers pulled over vehicles across the county and deputies let the drivers know by saying, "On behalf of the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the Polk County Peace Officers Association we would like to offer you a turkey instead of a ticket."

Deputies also handed out turkeys to GODTEL, which serves the homeless population of the county.

The department wanted to let the public know that they care and wanted to be a positive force in the area.
