    By: KIRO 7 News Staff


    KENT, Wash. - A Kent Police Department officer encountered a local boy while on patrol at Birch Creek Apartments yesterday whose bike was falling apart. The officer, identified only as Officer Clift, began chatting with the boy, and during the conversation suggested that the boy might need a new bike. He asked where the boy lived so he could drop one off. 

    The boy said he lived with his grandmother but didn't know the building number, so Officer Clift asked him to check with his grandmother, saying that he would drop off a new bike when he came to work the next day. He had a bike at home that he knew would be perfect.

    Officer Clift delivered the bike to him today as shown in the touching photo above.

    The Kent Police Department shared the photo on their Facebook page, saying, “Sometimes, this is our job and it ain’t too shabby.”
