Police officers dedicate their lives to helping their communities, so when one upstate New York cop stumbled upon a homeless man in need of a haircut and a hot shower, he was more than happy to help.
Officer Aaron Page was patrolling downtown Rome, New York when he spotted a homeless man who was ‘down on his luck’. Page started talking to the man named Bobby and learned that he desperately wanted to clean himself up with a warm shower and a haircut.
Page told Bobby to stop by the police station the next day, and when he arrived, Page and a few other officers gave Bobby a complete makeover. After a hot shower, the officers got Bobby new clean clothes and then got to work cutting his bushy, matted hair.
By the end of the haircut, Bobby was unrecognizable and as if the officers hadn’t helped enough, they gathered a bunch of donated clothes in his size and gave them to Bobby in a new duffel bag. “Bobby left looking like a whole new person and couldn’t thank us enough,” the police department wrote in a post to Facebook.
