HAMPTON, Va. – A police officer opened up Monday about saving the life of a suicidal person.
Officer Daniel Smith explained what happened one day as he was standing in his front yard.
Officer Smith was able to talk to a person who needed it most and to aid them in getting the help they needed.
A member of the Crisis Intervention Team, Smith explained what happened in a Facebook post:
“The other day I was actually standing in my front yard and I saw someone walking down the street who I had encountered on a day when they felt like taking their own life. I was able to speak to this person on that day and listen to them and bring them to get the help they need. It meant a lot to get to talk to this person again, and see them smile. They actually thanked me and said I really helped them through such a difficult time. As an officer who is a proud member of the Crisis Intervention Team, it truly meant a lot to hear those words.” – Officer Daniel Smith
Way to go, Officer Smith!
