Police officers get such a bad reputation from people at times, and they’re lives have never been more in danger and in more peril than they are at the moment. It seems that everyone has an agenda these days, and on that agenda is the overwhelming desire to hate on the people who are sworn in to keep us safe and out of harm’s way. While we know that there are always bad people in every group of good people – police included – it’s the good ones we’d rather focus on. Forget the bad cops that manage to create a terrible reputation for everyone else proudly serving in their uniforms; it’s guys like this who make it possible to see that there is good in the world. It’s Officer Evan Lavigne from Taunton, Massachusetts that has our attention.
He was called to a local bank to assist with a lost dog that they’d found. He picked up the dog and took the animal to animal control, but no one was there. Not wanting to just abandon the sweet pit pull, he decided to take a few selfies with the animal in his car and have them uploaded to Facebook. He said that dog was one of the kindest, friendliest he’d ever met and he was hoping that someone that knows the dog or its owners might see the photo on social media and let his owners know. It worked, and now he does it every single time he is called to find a lost dog. What a great officer, and what a great story!
