On the morning of March 22, Niles police officer Jerry Walczak took helped a homeless veteran in town.
The veteran had no shoes, no food and soiled clothing.
While he did this, Walczak was unknowingly being photographed by another officer.
"We are so humbled our officers are always doing the right thing," a social media post of the event read.
Walczak reached into his own pocket and bought the veteran new shoes, clothes and toiletries from the Walmart on west Golf Road as well as a burrito from Chipotle Mexican Grill with his own money.
