Taylor Swift is trying to do her part to ease the grief of a Massachusetts town mourning a recently fallen police officer.

The Patriot Ledger reported that the pop star donated hundreds of complimentary tickets to Weymouth, Mass. for her Foxborough concert on Thursday, which is part of her Reputation Tour.

Swift gave the tickets in response to the death of Weymouth's Sgt. Michael Chesna, who was killed earlier this month while responding to a car crash. The suspect is also believed to be responsible for killing bystander Vera Adams.

While Swift donated the tickets to the town in general, Weymouth Mayor Robert Hedlund decided to distribute them among the town's police officers and firefighters.

“My understanding is that they did it low-key and weren’t looking for publicity,” Hedlund told the Patriot Ledger. “There were enough to send every police officer, firefighter and extended family to the concert, and then some.”

On behalf of the town, Hedlund said that, "The gesture was absolutely generous, significant and appreciated."
