DeSoto, TX - Cedar Hill police officer Michell Martinez used her own money to buy a resident a security camera after someone stole the catalytic converter off her car.

Martinez told NBC 5 that she bought the camera for "Miss Kim" because she wanted to help make the woman feel safer in her community.

"I felt like in my heart that I could reach out and help her by purchasing the camera so that she could feel safe in her community.  I wanted her to feel safe in the community that we protect and serve," Martinez said.
