They fight crime, the find missing kids and sometimes they save ducklings.
The Truro Police Service in Nova Scotia posted a pair of videos of the daring duck rescue, including one of Constable Wendy Cormier, who jumped into a storm drain to pluck five young ducks up to street level.
Call it Truro’s Mother’s Day miracle.
“This morning Cst Cormier rescued 5 little ducks from a storm drain on Robie St.,” police posted on Facebook Sunday. “The ducks were reunited with their mother to celebrate Mother’s Day!
It was a dirty job, but Const. Cormier just the person to hop into action.
Police also thanked the town’s public works department for their assistance, too.
The ducklings were placed in a box and happily waddled over to their anxious mother.
