In another attempt to change people’s perceptions about the police department, two Clinton, Maine officers went above the call of duty.
Officers Roy and Diluca responded to a rescue call to help a woman who fell inside her home on Tuesday, according to a post by the Clinton Police Department on Facebook.
When they arrived at the woman’s home, the men helped the woman get back on her feet, and once she was ok, they noticed the mess in her kitchen. Knowing they had time to lend a helping hand, the two man began scrubbing all the dirty dishes in her sink.
The Clinton Police Department wrote on Facebook, “Officers Roy and Diluca responded to a rescue call to assist a lady that fell. One of her tasks that was undone was the dishes so what does serve and protect mean of course they did her dishes!!”
“It is our mission to change the culture of the police department we want you to know we will do whatever it takes to help you. Sometimes we have to man-handle a very aggressive guy that has injured his wife and other times we will sit on the floor to reassure your loved one that has dementia that they are safe. Today we did the dishes!!!” they continued.
People responded very well to the post, commenting:
