One Tuscaloosa Police Officer serves and protects one of the slowest members of our community. I was headed home for lunch on Monday and noticed a turtle sloooowwly making his way across the road attempting to make his way to the creek.

As a general life rule, I don't touch turtles. I know some can snap and act ugly and whatnot, so I just leave the handling up to other folks.

I called my husband Perry and asked him to please come help me help the turtle. Like all heroes, he answered my call for help.

See the rescue below.
