A team of compassionate police officers went above and beyond the call of duty last week when they met an elderly couple who could not afford to fit their wheelchair ramp.
According to a Facebook post from the Sunnydale Department of Public Safety in California, the officers were called to the couple’s home in response to a medical emergency.
Once the patient was treated, the cops couldn’t help but notice that the couple’s wheelchair ramp was in dire need of repair.
Since the couple was physically and financially unable to fix the ramp themselves, the officers left the residence to gather some supplies before returning to the home and fixing the ramp.
The city’s public safety Facebook page later posted a video of the civil servants hard at work in order to praise them for their compassion – and it has already been viewed thousands of times since it was uploaded last week.
“Although these officers believe they do not need any special recognition for doing this, we wanted to share this story to show you the often unseen kindness that our officers spread throughout our communities,” reads the video caption. “This story wouldn’t have been shared had Captain Anderson not been there to record these scenes and these officers wouldn’t have told anyone about their act of kindness.
“Everyday officers from across our nation impact the lives of others in ways unnoticed. To all who go above and beyond, thank you.”
