over continually flicks ashes from his cigarette onto the officer while the officer politely asks him to stop.

 

Other clips show an officer responding to someone who appears to be passed out on the grass, a man running through a plate glass door and officers chasing suspects on foot.

The clips are dramatic, heartwarming and even funny as they show officers rescuing a woman from the river, helping a person fix a bicycle, and trying to catch a baby gator.
