NORRIDGE, Ill. – Two police officers are being recognized for going above the call of duty to help a homeless man in the cold.

The two Norridge, Illinois police officers asked to remain anonymous, but told WBBM that on Dec. 29, they were called to a bus shelter where a homeless man was sitting with a pile of blankets.

The homeless man told the officers he wanted to board a bus, but couldn’t because he had no shoes. The shoes he was wearing had no soles.

The officers said they went to a nearby Payless store and bought the man a pair of $60 boots to keep his feet warm.

A woman witnessed the good deed, snapped a photo and shared it with the police department.

“This is amazing. Thank you!! Great Job Officers!” the woman wrote.
