CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A West Virginia officer is being recognized after helping a mother in need.
On April 14, Cpl. Jamie Wilson was responding to a domestic complaint at an apartment complex when he encountered the mother, WVAH reports. Wilson learned that the mother’s live-in boyfriend had taken money from her, leaving her unable to buy diapers for her child.
Wilson said he acted like any officer and father would and bought the mother some diapers and wipes for her baby.
"I'm here like any other dad and doing the right thing is just doing the right thing regardless of whether you wear a uniform or not," Wilson said.
Wilson’s kind act was recognized by the Charleston Police Department in a Facebook post. Wilson said he didn’t do anything special and that he was just helping out a parent.
"If there's anything within our power that we can do to help and assist and even get a parent to the proper channels to help them get other help that they need, we'll definitely be there for them," Wilson said.
