Seriously just melted my heart. I wish I knew what officer this was because he deserves some appreciation!”

The photos of Zac quickly went viral, with people all over the world praising the officer for his good deed! Even the Dayton Police Department tweeted about what he did.

“Off. Banks ‘caught’ in the act of helping a woman who was having trouble mowing her yard in Eastmont area,” the department wrote. “Off. Banks took care of the hill, which is always the toughest! A couple citizens saw this, took photos & posted to social media! Great Job Off. Banks! #HonorThroughService.”
