It was determined that the woman lived a couple of blocks away and Officers Haro and McDonald walked with her as she walked down the street to her residence. Upon escorting her into the residence, the officers discovered that the woman lived by herself and had very little food in her house. Without missing a beat, both officers returned to the car and went to Jewel to buy groceries for the woman. The officers returned to her house and stocked the refrigerator and cabinets with food.... paid for out of their own pockets. They were thanked with tears and a hug and went on their way to their next job.
This truly a testament to what good public servants do and we salute the CPD for this act of heroism. A win for the good guys!
