Two Michigan police officers went beyond the call of duty on Monday when they saw a wheelchair-bound man attempting to mow his lawn and decided to take over the task.

“The gentleman’s entire lawn was manicured to perfection,” according to a post on the Downtown Kalamazoo Cops Facebook page.

Kalamazoo officer Joe Hutson saw the man during one of his patrols and decided to take over the yard work, according to the post.

Shortly after, Hutson’s partner, Officer John Khillah, showed up with a push mower, a weed trimmer and a leaf blower.

Photos of the act show the officers mowing the shaggy grass around the man’s home.

“Many citizens stopped to view the kindness and compassion these officers displayed in helping a fellow citizen,” the post read.

The random act of kindness has received a lot of attention from well-wishers across the country. The Facebook post has been shared more than 3,000 times and received more than 6,000 likes.
