HARFORD COUNTY - In an act of kindness and community service, Harford County Deputy First Class Dave Elliott recently presented a young boy with his first bicycle, helmet, and a gift card.

The story began when DFC Elliott was dispatched for a call for service and met a child who candidly told him he had never owned a bicycle. Over subsequent encounters, Elliott noticed the boy playing outside and was amazed by his consistent, respectful behavior towards law enforcement officers.

Moved by the boy's kindness, Elliott decided to take matters into his own hands - rallying his fellow deputies to organize a fundraiser to purchase a new bicycle, helmet, and gift card for the child.

According to the Harford County Sheriff's Office, the fundraising initiative was a rapid success, gathering the necessary funds in just a few days. On August 26, DFC Elliott personally delivered the brand-new bike, helmet, and gift card to the delighted child and his grateful parents.

The Sheriff's Office announced the feel-good news on their Facebook page: "We hope he has many safe rides on his new bike! Thank you, DFC Elliott, for caring so much about the community you serve."
