BENICIA, Calif. (KRON) — Last week, a 19-year-old man’s work ethic and determination moved Benicia police officers to help him with his future.

During a late night patrol, Cpl. Keffer approached Jourdan Duncan while he was walking in Benicia’s Industrial Park area.

After speaking to him, Cpl. Keffer found out Duncan walks two hours each way every day.

He said he walks because he doesn’t have a vehicle and does not want to burden anyone with a ride.

Cpl. Keffer then offered Duncan a ride home and got to know him better.

Their conversation inspired Cpl. Keffer and the rest of the Benicia Police Officers Association to get Duncan a new bicycle as a mode of transportation.

The officers surprised him with his brand new bike at his work.

“You never know someone’s story until you talk to them. A young man’s work ethic and determination moved our officers to help him with his future.”, said Benicia police.

The officers say they wish the best for Duncan and his future.
