Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to a call a few weeks ago from Cameron Simmons,13, who said he didn't want to live in his house with his family anymore.
"I said, 'You have it good, you have a roof over your head,'" said Acerra. "I told him I would try to help him out, and here we are now."
When the officer brought Simmons home, he realized the boy didn't have a real bed or anything else he needed for a bedroom.
"My heart went out for him," said Acerra. "I thought the little things that he needed I could give him, to make him a happier kid."
