A Softer Side of Police Work

A Softer Side of Police Work

Recently, while handling a call for domestic violence in the Fifth District on Cleveland’s east side, Cleveland Police Officer Jarod Schlacht observed this little baby to be sitting in a very dirty diaper. Officer Schlacht took it upon himself to clean the little guy up and put him in a new diaper.

This is a side of police work the public does not get to see every day. The people we are able to help, the situations we are able to change, if only temporarily. The kind acts of policemen and policewomen every day on every shift in every town across this country. There is so much to the world of policing.

This photo was taken by Cleveland Police Chaplain Rabbi Sruly Wolf while on a ride along with Officer Jarod Schlacht and his partner Orville Taylor. Thank you, Jarod, for your kindness and thank you, Rabbi for the great photo!
