CAHOKIA, Ill. – An Illinois officer has come through for a man working hard to get a job.

The police officer pulled over the man with expired plates Wednesday. The man told Officer Roger Gemoules that he also did not have a valid driver’s license but had to risk the ride because he was on his way to a job interview.

The officer would not let him drive away. Instead, Gemoules took him to the interview.

A post to Cahokia’s community Facebook page said “He wouldn’t let me drive away cause my L’s suspended so the police gave me a ride to my interview 💪🏾‼️ & I got it ‼️WONT HE DO IT 🙌🏾”

The man got the job.

Francella Jackson posted this message to Facebook, “On behalf of Mayor Curtis McCall Jr., I would like to thank Officer Gemoules for showing compassion and being a great example of how community-oriented policing actually works.”
