"Our night shift had an ALPR hit and soon located the vehicle. The driver was taken into custody and it was discovered that the driver was an UBER eats employee. Our Lieutenant, Tyrone Butler, took possession of the food and made the delivery to the awaiting customer. I can only imagine their reaction when he pulled up to make the delivery."
RIVIERA BEACH PD, FL
"Officer Jones responded to a call from a social worker about a young mother with her 2 month old and 3 year old sleeping in various areas of the city. Instead of just documenting the facts and taking the report, Officer Jones took it upon herself to actually help this family - she used her own money to purchase diapers, food, and other necessities they were in need of."
ELON PD, NC
"Sergeant Chavis responded to the home of an elderly Elon resident for a medical call. Once on scene, he realized the citizen suffered from mobility issues and required home health care which failed to report due to the inclement weather. Sergeant Chavis got the citizen dressed / settled in her wheelchair. Going the extra mile Sergeant Chavis contacted "Always Best Care Senior Services" and spoke with a manager, who arranged for an employee to stay with our citizen. Due to the ice and snow, the employee did not feel comfortable driving, so Sergeant Chavis responded to her residence and gave her a ride to the Elon resident's home."
GASTON COUNTY PD, NC
"Officer Race was dispatched to a non-emergency call stating that a flower had been taken. The "victim" was a child with special needs, so Officer Race showed up to the scene to help. The "missing" flower had actually been found right before Officer Race arrived, but the special needs child and his friend were happy to see him and started asking him a bunch of questions about his car and equipment."
NEW YORK STATE POLICE
"Trooper Conklin was called to check on an elderly man at a rest stop. The man had been traveling with family and they accidentally left him there. The elderly man didn't have his wallet or cellphone with him, so without the family member's phone numbers, Trooper Conklin had a hard time trying to contact his relatives to let them know they left him behind. Trooper Conklin was finally able to get in contact with an out-of-state relative and they were able to contact the elderly man's family. The family and the elderly man were reunited in Roscoe, New York, where they all met for dinner at a local diner."
ELON PD, NC
"While taking a coffee break at a local convenient store, MPO Stephen Greeson overhead a lady who was trying to get back on her feet after a recent divorce. She said she was traveling from Ashe County, NC back to her home in Apex, NC (a 200 mile journey). She was seeking temporary shelter for one night while passing through, so MPO Greeson called the communications center and inquired about shelters in the area. All of the shelters were full and/or had quarantine policies due to COVID. The lady had $50 to spare for a motel, but even that wasn't enough to pay for a room, so MPO Greeson escorted the lady to the Best Western nearby and paid for a room in FULL, which allowed her to keep the $50 she had on hand."
SANTA ROSA PD, CA
"A few years ago, while Officer Whitten was on patrol, he met a pregnant woman who desperately needed some help. She was actually looking for a family and a home for her unborn baby. Officer Whitten was already the proud father of 3 girls, but he did not hesitate and immediately opened his heart and his home to this baby. Once the baby was born and a moving adoption hearing was done, the baby officially became a part of Officer Whitten's family! Officer Whitten is now a proud father of 4 girls."
BURKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE, GA
"The Burke County EMA was dispatched to assist a laceration incident. As the EMS crew arrived on scene, they found a man laying face up in the yard with Deputy Gould rendering aid to him. Deputy Gould had applied a tourniquet and was wrapping a large open wound on the man's calve with a padded pressure dressing. A large amount of blood was lost on scene and the man began to show signs of shock when he was loaded into the unit. The EMA team believes that had Deputy Gould not applied a tourniquet and pressure bandage on the man's leg, that he would have most likely bled to death before EMS arrived."
HAMPTON PD, NH
"While on patrol, Officer Haley Magee was parked in a lot and all of a sudden heard the sound of "screeching tires". As she pulled out of the lot to investigate, she saw a black vehicle right in front of her that starting to veer off the road. As she got closer to the vehicle, she saw where it had suddenly smashed into a large tree and then heard a woman screaming. The car started smoking, so Officer Magee immediately tried to get the woman out of the car. Due to the severity of damage to the vehicle, Magee was not sure how to get her out, but she reacted quickly and used her Maglite flashlight to smash the rear window open. Before the vehicle caught fire, Officer Magee was able to move the victim to her cruiser to take care of her until the Hampton Fire Department arrived to put out the fire and take the woman to the hospital."
REVERE BEACH, MA
"The State Police Barracks on Revere Beach had received multiple calls reporting a fire at a high-rise apartment building. Troopers Christopher Kane (State Police Barracks), Stephen Thomson (State Police Barracks), Xhulijo Hysa (Logan Airport Barracks), and Joseph Diliegro (MSP Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section) arrived at the scene and immediately entered the burning building. Trooper Thomson climbed to the 15th floor (which was right above the fire) to evacuate residents. Troopers Kane and Diliegro went to the 12th floor and started evacuating residents from that floor down. As Trooper Hysa was trying to evacuate other parts of the building and encountered an elderly woman who was helping her child in a wheelchair. Trooper Hysa escorted the woman and her son out of the building safely. As all troopers were exiting the building, about 30 minutes in, they learned that an elderly man was still on the 6th floor who was on oxygen and unable to get out of the building on his own. Troopers Thomson and Kane ran back into the building to where he was and with the help of Revere Firefighters, they were able to remove him from the building and sent him to EMS personnel who were ready to treat him with an oxygen system. All four Troopers sustained some degree of exposure to smoke and carbon monoxide and were treated at a nearby hospital."
YARMOUTH PD, MA
"Officer Xiarhos was dispatched to a nearby residence for a welfare check. The resident is visually impaired and did not have the resources to maintain her yard, so after meeting with the resident and seeing the condition of her property, Officer Xiarhos organized a yard clean up crew. A group of Yarmouth PD officers and family members met on Saturday (June 18th) and spent several hours cutting brush, mowing the lawn, and removing various debris around the house. Officer Xiarhos not only spearheaded the entire project, but he was also able to secure a donated piece of equipment to help cut the heavy brush around the resident's home that needed to be removed."
IPSWICH POLICE, MA

Officer Bodwell arrived on scene as quickly as he could and saw a man out in the water waving for help. Bodwell was able to rescue a pregnant woman first, followed by a second woman, a 14-month old little girl, and then 2 men. Officer Bodwell evaluated each of them and learned that they had all fallen into the water after their aluminum boat capsized in rough water.

DESOTO COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, MS
"One day, Sergeant David McCoy met a man by the name of Dan Williams (age 57) sitting in front of a Wendy's in Horn Lake. When Sergeant McCoy found out that he was down on his luck and hungry, he walked inside and offered to buy the man lunch. The Wendy's management would not let him pay though, because they ended up covering the man's lunch instead. As Sergeant McCoy sat down and ate lunch with Mr. Williams, he found out that he did not have any money or a phone, so he has been trying to catch as many rides as he can from Ohio in an attempt to get down to Louisiana to be with his family. Sergeant McCoy could tell that Mr. Williams had a good heart and wanted to help him, so he teamed up with Deputies Brea, Garrett, and Andrews and they all pulled money out of their own pockets to buy Mr. Williams an $89 Greyhound bus ticket to get home. They also gave him an additional $60 for some food and necessities. Sergeant McCoy said Mr. Williams broke down and cried as he was being dropped off at the bus station. Mr. Williams looked over at Sergeant McCoy and said, "Out of all the people that reached out to help me in my time of need, it was the cops. Thank you!"

She stopped to see if the driver needed assistance and after having a conversation with him, she quickly realized that he was badly down on his luck.The driver was actually on his way to a pawn shop to pawn something so he would have enough money to stop by the gas station to put gas in his car so he could then drive to the local food shelf.

"Officer Kenneth Torrence was riding down the road on duty when he noticed a van parked about 25 yards away. A few minutes had gone by while he was in the parking lot and he saw the door of the van open up and 2 small children got out of the van. They both sat on the ground near the van and then 3 more children got out. After Officer Torrence saw a total of 5 children exit the van, he decided to park his vehicle a little bit closer to keep an eye on them. As he got closer to the van, he saw 2 ladies inside, so he went over and said, "Good morning! Is everything okay?" The older lady responded, "Yes, we are okay. I'm just waiting on my husband who is inside donating plasma for money." Officer Torrence explained to the 2 women what his job duties were, which consisted of helping citizens in need and he asked if they needed his help. The older lady was very hesitant at first, so Officer Torrence asked if the kids had eaten breakfast and she said, "That is what they are doing now." The children were all sitting on the ground eating a granola bar. Officer Torrence asked the older lady if he could buy them breakfast from a nearby McDonalds and tears started falling down her face. She then admitted that they were homeless and living out of their van. Officer Torrence ended up buying McDonald's for the whole family. He also went to the grocery store to buy them some more food for later and then placed them in a hotel until they could find them permanent housing."
AUBURN PD, MA
"The State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (VFAS) contacted the Auburn PD to advise them about a vehicle seen in their area that was connected to a suspect who was wanted for attempted murder (based on an incident that happened in South Carolina). Sergeant Santos volunteered to strategically position himself on the interstate to monitor the incoming traffic where the vehicle was headed. Once he saw the vehicle drive past him, he calmly radioed the suspect's location and followed the vehicle until other officers arrived to help make the arrest. A high risk stop was conducted and the suspect was brought into custody without anyone getting hurt. Sergeant Santos was later recognized for his outstanding work and was given a Meritorious Service Award."
