Help­ful po­lice of­fi­cer in­spires re­spect

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I re­cently went for break­fast at Luda’s Deli on Aberdeen Av­enue and Sal­ter Street at about 9:30 a.m.

There were two Win­nipeg po­lice of­fi­cers at the restau­rant. While the of­fi­cers were wait­ing for their break­fast, one got up and started clean­ing ta­bles and serv­ing cof­fee and hot water for tea.

I com­pli­mented his “com­mu­nity com­mit­ment.” He smiled and said, “Tax­pay­ers’ dol­lars at your ser­vice.”

This was to­tally un­ex­pected. He smiled ev­ery time he served a cus­tomer.

I have a new re­spect for the Win­nipeg Po­lice Ser­vice, and I hope the of­fi­cer gets the recog­ni­tion he de­serves.
