Orono Police Officer Mows Woman's Lawn After Responding To Welfare Check

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The Orono Police Department says it's proud to serve, and a photo from Thursday proves it.

The image captures officer Matt Siltala moving a resident's lawn.

The department says he was called for a welfare check, and after making sure the woman was OK, asked why her yard was so unkempt. She said she didn't have anyone to mow.

Siltala grabbed a mower and cut the grass for her.

The department also joked online that whoever took the picture should have grabbed a trimmer and helped out.
