A Victoria police officer who bought a plane ticket for a disoriented senior so that she could be reunited with her family was quick to deflect praise for his kindness.
The 65-year-old woman was reported missing by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines vessel Jewel of the Sea on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. PT. She had left the ship when it docked in Victoria at 10 a.m. and did not return, and the ship left without her.
Victoria K-9 officer Const. Andre Almeida took her to the local hospital to be assessed. That's when he decided to arrange a flight for the elderly woman from Victoria to Seattle, so that she could catch her existing flight back to New York.

We NEED more of this "Good Cop" on ATS.
Too many "really bad" (me keeping it child friendly) cops in the headlines...
It would be nice if I didn't have to go out of the country to find the story…!
