Officer caught lying down on the job for a good reason

Officer Jamie Landrum bought clothes, shoes, fresh diapers and a coat for the child.

A photo shared to the Cincinnati Police Department’s Facebook page shows Officer Landrum lying on the floor with the boy at the police station, trying to get him to take a nap.

According to WXIX, the boy’s mother came to the police station, but later admitted to being intoxicated.

She was arrested on a child abuse charge, and the boy has been placed in the care of a relative.
