Officer Crawls Under Bus to Comfort Pinned Woman

Just popping in during this busy holiday season to share this picture and link of a positive LEO story. I'm sure many of you have already heard about this, but a woman was trapped under a bus, and Utah Police Officer, Kevin Peck, crawled under and stayed with her to comfort her and hold her hand while they waited for rescuers to lift the bus. This is the kind of story involving officers that I love to hear about. I wish all the good that officers do would be shared like this with the rest of the world. I liked this part at the end of the article:
Peck responds to a lot of accidents in the course of his duties, but said this one was different.
“At times, the job can become mundane. Then, every once in a while, something touches you more than the others. It reminds you why you became a police officer,” he said.
“All across the country, officers do things like this every day,” he added. “It’s part of the job.”
I'm glad there are still people like this out there. It's easy to forget. You can watch an interview with Officer Peck here and read more about the incident.

Wow. People just don't realize what officers really do on a daily basis. Yeah, this is a big thing,but there are so many little things officers do for citizens daily.

This is an example of a police officer that has really undergone a regorious training. How to become a police officer is not an easy thing and it really requires a lot of training. Two thumbs up :)

I guess the best solution to this growing social problem is that our police should always be reminded with the essence of their existence and their role in the society.

I wish our news would post more of these positive stories rather than all the negative stuff that's all over the news nowadays. This is the first I've heard of this story and it warms my heart and makes me so proud to be a LEO wife.
