A Maryland officer helped out a mother and her 1-year-old.
Corporal Che' Atkinson talked to the mom in the police station lobby and found out the woman had escaped an abusive home and had nowhere to go. He called the county for assistance but didn't get anywhere. He found a relative of hers who could pick them up but was surprised to see them in the lobby again the next morning.
Atkinson learned the family couldn't pick them up until the next day and that the mom and baby hadn't eaten in days. Using his own money and his patrol car, Atkinson got them food and a hotel room.
