To serve and protect. That’s the vow so many officers have taken, and they uphold it every day in a variety of ways.

Many times they go above and beyond their line of duty just to make sure that things get done. All in the service of the community they’re protecting.

Sterling Heights Police are being praised online after agreeing to perform a favor while tending to a road accident.

It was an uncommon request.

They were still thrilled and happy to help in any way possible.

Bryanna Fantozzi was on her way to deliver a DoorDash order to a customer when she got involved in a car accident due to the icy roads.

The crash happened on Metropolitan Parkway near Dodge Park Road in Sterling Heights.

It was a big scare.

Fantozzi, who is 6 months pregnant, was with her 2-year-old daughter when the incident happened. Thankfully, both were unharmed.

Though her Ford Fusion was inoperable after the crash, what she was worried about is the fact that the delivery might not be fulfilled.

She asked a big favor.

While the Michigan police were checking and confirming she was okay, Fantozzi asked them if they could do the delivery for her instead.

The police happily obliged.

โ€œYeah, sure, Iโ€™ll take it for you, whatโ€™s the address?โ€ one cop asks. โ€œI hope they give you a good review.โ€

When the cop asked how much was in the car, he didn’t know what he was in for.

There was a lot.

Lt. David Allen and Office Kyle Smith then emptied Fantozzi’s car of the groceries and transferred to the police car.

The tow truck driver was kind, too.

In the video, the tow truck was seen waiting while the groceries were transferred.

Then the officer told dispatch, “They got a DoorDash that’s gotta go so we’re gonna take them for her.”

The bodycam video shows the cop arrived at the DoorDash customer’s house just outside of Detroit. A few blocks away from where the accident took place.

Fantozzi did inform the customer that she got into an accident and the police were taking care of the delivery.

The cop delivered, but he wasn’t “responsible”.

While the goods were given to the customer, the cop mentioned, “I donโ€™t take responsibility if any of this is inaccurate.”

She chuckled that she understood.

The customer still thanked the officer before he left the vicinity.

“We have an obligation to protect and serve,” as the cop would say.

It was an impressive moment.

Lt. Mario Bastianelli, a spokesperson from the police department, said it was just a day in the life of an officer.

“The Sterling Heights Police Department strives to deliver above and beyond service at all times,” he shared in the statement. “This is just another exemplary incident by our officers to best serve our community.”
