Police Officer Goes Above and Beyond to Help Desperate New Mom With Formula at 2 a.m.

Back in his cruiser, he called the mom, promising he’d be there in a few minutes. When he arrived, the relief on her face was immediate. Holding her tiny, hungry baby, she was beyond grateful. She tried to pay him, but Willoughby refused, understanding that she had more pressing concerns.

This touching moment was captured on body cam footage and shared by Chief of Police Mike Mills, highlighting the compassion and dedication of the Miami Township Police. “You don’t often hear about everything a police officer does in the course of their shift,” Mills wrote, praising Willoughby’s actions as an example of the department’s commitment to their community.

Reflecting on the event, Willoughby said, “You tend to hear the bad stories, and the good stories get overlooked. We’ve built our entire department around helping.” His simple act of kindness, driven by empathy and a father’s heart, reminds us of the unseen good that many officers do every day.
