When I was growing up everyone wanted to be a police officer, it was one of the most honorable jobs you could have. You were trusted to serve and protect, you were looked up to and respected. As much as I wish officers were still treated this way, it's so easy to highlight the bad actions of a few. But there are so many tremendous things that officers do each day that most go without recognition. A Grand Junction Officer did something last week that was tremendous and I thought it deserved some publicity.

As Officer Daly was working her normal shift taking care of the streets of Grand Junction she noticed a dog that seemed to be lost, or at least running loose. After wrapping up the call she was on she was met by a neighbor worried about the dog. Thinking fast, officer Daly retrieved a snack from her patrol car and headed toward the pup.

The Intelligent Officer Knew Just What to do When Approaching the Lost Dog

Officer Daly was quickly sharing a treat with the dog, as he was hungry after being lost for a while. Luckily this story ends with good news as the dog was quickly returned to his owners after enjoy a day out on the town.
