BPD Officer Lends Helping Hand in West Roxbury

Yesterday afternoon, Wednesday, July 15, 2015, as storm clouds moved into the area, an officer assigned to District E-5 (West Roxbury) was flagged down on Centre Street by a man in need of assistance.  The gentleman was facing an uphill battle to return home in his wheelchair and was afraid that stormy weather was about to arrive.  Without hesitation, the officer got out of his cruiser and pushed the man up the hill, making sure he arrived home safely.  A passerby captured these images of the kind gesture and was grateful to the officer for taking care of the man in his moment of need.
