Chicago police get a lot of heat for the endemic violence in parts of the city, but not all cops are bad guys, as this officer proved by rescuing a dog that had fallen into Lake Michigan.

Police departments across the country because all the videos that come out on the internet are of them shooting and hurting people but they do some good stuff, too.

If more cops acted like this guy, and we got to see it, community-police relations would improve. The dog looked like it had some Pit in it; definitely refreshing to see an officer interact with a “vicious” dog that doesn’t end with shots fired.

Hats off to this cop, who’s provided a good look for a notoriously sketchy police department.
