Elk Grove Officers Responding to Call End Up Helping Elderly Man with Yardwork

ELK GROVE — A pair of Elk Grove police officers went above and beyond recently during a call for service.

According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, Officers Meyedick and Freitas encountered a man trying to clear overgrown brush and tree limbs.

The officers likely didn’t tell anyone about what they had done, because the police department said it only found out after someone from the community called in to say thank you.
