Things were not looking good for this family. Luckily, an upstanding police officer was able to turn them around.
The mother, who had been recently diagnosed with cancer, had fallen asleep while doing laundry at a New Jersey hotel's public laundry room. When she woke up, she discovered that the family's clothes, including winter gear, had all been stolen. After officers responded to the call, Sgt. Andrew Brewer of Westampton Police Department decided to take matters into his own hands. He took the mom and kids to Target, where he helped them shop for clothing to replace what they lost.
"I put myself in her position, having children of my own, and [realized] how distraught and upset I would be," Brewer said.
Now, he's getting high praise from his colleagues, who are calling his selfless gesture an exemplification of what it means to be a good member of law enforcement.
"Sgt. Brewer’s actions demonstrated that the most effective piece of equipment that an officer has is his own human heart," Lt. Roger J. Rogers said. "When you base your decisions on that, you’re more likely to do what’s right."
