The officer determines that the citizen is not in any danger. The officer then establishes a friendship with the citizen and he begins stopping by her house each week while he is on duty. She trusts him because he is always in uniform. She begins offering him money, first in small amounts, and later in larger amounts. He initially declines the money, but he later begins accepting it. Over the course of a few weeks, he eventually accepts a thousand dollars from her in cash and in credit card purchases made on the Internet.
