ALBION, Mich. (WOOD) — The Albion Department of Public Safety praised one of its officers who went out of her way to make sure a local man could get in and out of his apartment.

In a Facebook post, the department said Officer Karilynn Noppe learned that a man who is paralyzed on his left side was worried about leaving his home at Oak Meadows Apartments because he had a difficult time getting down the steps.

Noppe found an anonymous donor to provide a ramp. Dimert Construction donated the installation, which happened Thursday.

Noppe next hopes to get the man a motorized wheelchair.
