According to WSMV TV, a Sumter police officer went above and beyond for a 13-year-old boy.

A few weeks ago, 13-year-old Cameron Simmons called Sumter police because he was upset after fighting with his mom. The teenager told police he didn't want to live in the house with his family anymore.

Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to the call.

This is proof that there are good police officers out there that go above and beyond the call of duty to encourage and support individuals that need it most!
