Sheri Duran is a school resource officer in Adams County, Colorado. In November 2017, she was alerted to a suspicious vehicle and went by to investigate. When Sheri peeked inside the windows, she saw a heartbreaking sight.

A couple who had just become homeless were sleeping inside the broken-down truck. They feared Sheri would issue them a ticket and/or have their vehicle towed away.

Touched by their story, Sheri promised not call the tow truck company. Instead, she called the sheriff’s office community resource team.

Deputy Paul Siska arrived at the scene and learned even more about the couple’s desperate situation. They lost their home and were actively looking for jobs, but once their truck broke down, they had no transportation.

The deputies banded together and quickly brought the truck to Ingram Car Care Center. There, shop owner Todd Ingram enlisted his motorcycle club to pay for a brand-new working transmission. Todd installed the rest of the repairs and replacements at no cost.

But with their truck undergoing repairs, the couple had lost their temporary shelter in the cold winter season.

That’s where Deputy Siska took his kindness even further.
