Elderly Woman Notices Police Officers Outside Her Home - Realizes Why (Photos)

A Birmingham, Alabama woman was out trying to mow her front lawn with an old push mower. In the extreme heat, the elderly woman struggled and the job was slow going. Lucky for her, the friendly neighborhood police showed up and lent a hand.

The woman, in her 70s, wishes to remain nameless. Officers Erik Henderson, Robert Lewis, and Ivy Nicole Jackson were on patrol when they encountered her and decided to help her. The three officers took turns with the mower until the job was done.

Birmingham officers often conduct welfare checks on the local elderly. They say it's not uncommon for officers to jump in and lend a hand with chores or errands. Usually, the deed goes unnoticed by anyone other than the person that gets the help.

"Our officers on their own initiative do all types of wonderful things serving our citizens," said Lt. Sean Edwards.

"A lot of people don't like us but we're here to help," said Henderson.

The department's motto is 'Serving with Ethics and Effort.' They take it to heart.
