Police officers will often do whatever they can for a fellow officer in need, but this group of 35 New York cops just went above and beyond for a fellow officer’s family after he was killed in the line of duty.
On July 9, New York State Trooper Joel Davis was shot and tragically died after responding to a domestic violence call. Davis’s coworkers were crushed by the loss, but they knew his wife and three kids were even more devastated especially since Davis’ youngest daughter’s 13th birthday was just days away.
To show the family their support, 35 active and retired state troopers recently came together to finish building a tree house for 13-year-old Jaila, which Davis had started but never got the chance to finish. “They completed the project in just one day,” Trooper Jack Keller said.
In just one day, the 35 officers managed to build the lofted fort, which featured a wooden ladder, windows, and a deck that they decorated with string lights and a black and white American flag with one blue stripe down the middle in honor of Jaila’s dad.
