Police Officers Fix Wheelchair Ramp For Elderly Couple Who Desperately Need It

Hats off to these police officers who went the extra mile last week when responding to a medical emergency at the home of an elderly couple. That part was just their job, but what wasn’t their job was noticing the couple’s wheelchair ramp was in obvious need of repair and taking it upon themselves to fix it.

The elderly couple was clearly both physically and financially unable to repair the ramp themselves. After making sure the patient was treated the officers went out and got the supplies they needed and came straight back.

If it wasn’t for the Sunnydale Department of Public Saftey posting it on their public Facebook page, there’s a good chance no one would have even found out about this compassionate deed.

The video caption reads:

“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. 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.”

It really is great to see a story about this kind of compassion coming from police officers. There’s always going to be some bad apples but that doesn’t mean there aren’t amazing men and women out there every day protecting and serving their community. There are still good people doing good things in this world, even if it doesn’t always get the coverage it deserves.

Hello human kindness and compassion. On Monday evening, several of our officers responded to a medical call at a residence in Sunnyvale. After treating the patient, the officers discovered that his wheelchair ramp was in need of some major repairs. The couple, both elderly, were unable to physically repair the ramp themselves and didn’t have the money to pay someone to do it. Our officers knew they couldn’t just leave without doing anything about it, so they left to gather supplies needed and came back to repair the ramp. 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. 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.
