INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 11, 2014) – An IMPD officer takes the phrase “giving back” to a whole new level.
He gave his shoes to a man in need.
On Wednesday, Officers Pat McPherson and Phil Smiley were working with the outreach group “The Pourhouse.”
They offer mental health services to the homeless.
They noticed a man near 38th and Moeller wasn’t wearing shoes.
Officer Smiley went back to his squad car and found an extra pair of shoes!
The man then voluntarily asked for mental health treatment.
