Kind cops helping to support our vulnerable
Our generous officers are going the extra mile to help the elderly and vulnerable in our communities - including buying a 95-year-old man a fridge to keep his food fresh.
Caring cops clubbed together for the kitchen appliance after arranging for a charity to distribute food parcels to his Birmingham home.
We also helped get essentials for the pensioner too with the help of Asda in Queslett and The Range in West Bromwich.
We’re working alongside a range of partners to support people across our neighbourhoods during these difficult times. Volunteers are delivering leaflets to vulnerable residents in Birmingham detailing support which is available.
Superintendent Gareth Morris said: “We’re seeing some heartfelt acts of kindness from officers who want to help others in their time of need.
“Their generosity and desire to make lives that bit better is inspiring and something I’m incredibly proud of. We are police officers, but we’re also people of the community, and we’re all together as one."
