NEWARK, DE (WFSB) –
The Newark Delaware Police Department sought to hug it out with the very community it protects.
Two officers gave random people free hugs last week.
Cpl. James Spadola and Officer Aaron Olicker stood along Main Street and held up signs that read “Free hugs” and included the Twitter hashtag #HugACop.
A viral video of the duo continues to work its way around the internet.
A number of people were happy to receive a hug while others shied away.
