SDPD officers buy stove for family in need

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two San Diego patrol officers have come to the aid of a Barrio Logan family in need.

Officers Rivas and Castro from the Central Division knew the family was living in very poor conditions with a stove that barely worked. So they pooled their own money and bought a portable stove.

"Our motto is Protect and Serve. It's on our police vehicles and we want to show the serving part is there to protect, but we're there to serve in so many other ways,” said Officer Ricardo Rivas.

The stove delivery was part of a new program organized by officers called Operation Rescue Families.
