Sergeant Tyler Petrin from New Hampshire’s Claremont Police Department went above and beyond to help a student while directing traffic at a graduation ceremony at Stevens High School. A video uploaded to social media shows him answering people’s questions and tying a tie around his neck simultaneously for a student who needed help.
The student did not know how to tie a tie and so was waiting patiently for Petrin to help him do that. The officer slipped the tie off his own neck and put it on for the student and even helped tighten it well. Helping a student look sharp on graduation day isn’t part of a cop’s job description, but it was a moment of kindness that the young student will remember all his life.
The heartwarming footage was shared by the Claremont Poice Department as well as local news outlets with a sweet caption. “Proud of our team at Claremont PD! Sergeant Tyler Petrin handling traffic while helping a young man attending the Stevens High School graduation ceremony with tying his tie,” the Claremont Police Department wrote.
