INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Officers in IMPD's north district have gone above and beyond again to help a man they first met when his wheelchair broke down.

On Wednesday, Officers Cauley and Smith presented George Morgan with a new electric wheelchair.

Back in February, officers came to help when they noticed Morgan in a broken down electric wheelchair.

They pushed the man home about three blocks away, crossing busy streets to make sure he got home safe.

"It's not always about catching crooks and taking reports, the larger part of this career is showing compassion to those you serve everyday," IMPD wrote in a Facebook post at the time.

The new wheelchair was thanks to a community member who saw the original post. He then got in touch with the Bally Foundation, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, that specializes in providing specialized equipment to individuals facing special challenges such as this.
