Boston police officers are used to people asking them for help. But one officer took it a step further Sunday, when a man approached him with a unique problem.

The officer was on his regular tour of duty in Hyde Park, and the man was on his way to church. The problem was he didn’t know how to tie his necktie, CBS Boston reports. 

The officer helped the man without hesitation, and said he was happy to help.

Nice to see a young Officer that knows how to tie a tie. And how to connect to the community. Hope this gets to all the media outlets across the country, I said "hope". Very nice. Blues, Stay Safe.

Pictures are worth a thousand words. Think about it! What would happen if more LE took on this type of role where rather than represent force, represent a calm and more assertive stance within the community we police. Not every community will welcome such the approach, but its definitely a start to conversation. I get it, they'll be criminals who don't care & they'll be LE that will refuse to build this type of rapport. Mainly because somebody gotta be the big bad wolf. I don't doubt the nature of most in the inner cities are unapproachable, but at least having LE like this one tying a neck tie is refreshing to see. It doesn't take away from his authority but adds to the level of respect missing for LE. Much respect to this officer who didn't hide behind his badge, but stood up as a role model for a young man who apparently needed some support.
