“Melts your heart…
Trooper Jim Burke who is assigned to the State Police – Milton Barracks responded to the Blue Hills Reservation to take a report of a missing bicycle.
When he arrived, he learned that a young girl and her family were visiting the Houghton’s Pond area. They left her bicycle at the pavilion as they walked the beach area. When they returned to the pavilion, they found that the bicycle had been stolen. The young girl was devastated.
After a conversation with the family, Trooper Burke offered the girl a bike he had at home which his daughter had outgrown. The family was ecstatic and accepted the offer! The girl was so excited as she took her new bike for their first ride!
That’s dedication to community. Thank you Trooper Burke for going the extra on this one!”-Massachusetts State Police.
