LadBiblealso reports that Tony remained humble, even after his act of kindness went viral:
I like to think of us more as peace officers first, law enforcement officers second. You go to a scene and you try to resolve it with a positive ending, and something that's gonna last.
There's a time and place to arrest people and take them to jail, of course, but if you can help and fix the situation to [help] it get better, the chances are you're not gonna have to come back out there later.
Phil is obviously smashing it at his new job, proving that dedication, hard work, and perseverance really can pay off, with a little kindness to boost you along the way.
