In the line of duty, we expect police officers to come to the rescue when they’re called. In most instances, these calls are for your common incidents: domestic violence, theft, car accidents, etc. But in many cases – and often ones that get little media attention – cops go above and beyond the “call of duty.” Many times, acts of police kindness can be simple gestures of playing with kids or offering a helping hand. As they say, “Sometimes it’s just the little things that count.” Some police officers went above and beyond by shoveling snow for community members, and others simply helped out a girl with her lemonade stand.
From buying a child a new bike after it was stolen to diving into a moving vehicle to save a baby from a potential car crash, these are the most amazing acts of police kindness and heroism.
