BENICIA (KRON) — Last week, a 19-year-old man’s work ethic and determination moved Benicia police officers to help him with his future.
During a late night patrol, Cpl. Keffer approached a male walking in Benicia’s Industrial Park area. After speaking to him, Cpl. Keffer found out that 19-year-old Jourdan Duncan walks two hours each way every day, from Vallejo to go to work in Benicia. Jourdan told Cpl. Keffer that he walks because he does not have a vehicle and does not want to burden anyone with a ride.
Cpl. Keffer then offered Jourdan a ride home and got to know him better.
Their conversation inspired Cpl. Keffer and the rest of the Benicia Police Officers Association to get Jourdan a new bicycle as a mode of transportation.
The officers surprised Jourdan with his brand-new bike at his work.
“You never know someone’s story until you talk to them — A young man’s work ethic and determination moved our officers to help him with his future.”, said Benicia police.
Benicia police said they wish the best for Jourdan and his future and are very proud of their officers.
