Woman stops by Colorado police station to hug officer

The Arvada, Colorado, Police Department has posted a photo on its Facebook account of a woman who came into the station just so she could hug an officer.

KMGH-TV reports the woman told police on Monday she was upset about the deaths of law enforcement members nationwide.


She hugged 20-year veteran Officer Chris Steiner, who says he responds to almost every fatality the department handles.

He said it's nice to get a hug rather than observe trauma.
