A Connecticut officer is being hailed for helping a Bridgeport child in need this weekend.

Officer Cody Remy was on patrol in Trumbull Gardens on Saturday when city officials said he stopped to help a child, whose bicycle was broken. The kind gesture was caught on camera and sent out to local media.

Remy was unaware the photo was taken, WFSB TV reports.

“Officer Remy's act of helping out a child in need in our community is a great example. He doesn't think he did anything extraordinary,” Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch said in a statement Sunday. “But I disagree. The picture speaks for itself. And, I'll leave it up to others in our community and beyond to decide for themselves."

Fine example of how daily we LEOs make a difference.

I think that there are probably more of these acts of kindness from law enforcement officers than we know about. They just don't receive the publicity all the time. Good job Officer Remy!
