Gr8 Job!: Officer praised for helping man with appliance

BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Out-of-town visitors say they saw a local police officer do some heavy lifting to help another person.

A post on the Batesville Police Department Facebook page described a message which came from a couple from Oklahoma traveling through the city.

The couple said they saw an officer pull up and help a man who was having some trouble unloading a washing machine.

The man who left the message for the department said it was nice to see the officer help.

In the same post the police department noted it was Ptl. Michael Dickinson who helped and the department offered their thanks to the officer for "being a positive role model not only for our community and department, but law enforcement as a whole."
