Moody police officer meets stranger who left ‘very thoughtful’ note

Considerate note left for Moody officer

MOODY, Ala. (WBRC) - Being a police officer is a stressful job. There’s no doubt about it. So anytime you see someone go out of their way to do something nice for law enforcement, it’s heartwarming.

Recently, a kind gesture in Moody came in the form of a note. It was from a stranger to Moody police officer Reece Smith.

The post, written from Rodney Green with Green Lawn Maintenance, has gone viral after Smith posted it to Facebook. It has more than 11,000 likes, over 600 comments and has been shared almost 5,500 times. It reads:

“I realized this morning that every time I have cut the yard next door, your patrol car is in the drive. If you will call me, I will adjust my cut time to accommodate your sleep schedule.” Signed, Rodney Green.

We were there Tuesday morning when the two met. You can watch the meeting below.

WATCH LIVE: Rodney Green always noticed Moody officer Reece Smith's patrol car was home when he mowed the lawn of Smith's neighbor. So Green left a simple note, asking if Smith would like him to reschedule mowing in case Smith was asleep. Rodney Green and Reece Smith are now meeting for the first time.
