The Woodstock Police Department was tagged in a social media post where Officer B. Keane was identified for “going above and beyond” the call of duty.


“I want to give a HUGE shoutout to a Woodstock police officer. I stupidly did not get his name. My mom was pulling into the Sams shopping center and ran out of gas. He allowed her to wait there until I brought gas. I thought I brought enough gas but it wasn’t enough to get her started. He graciously volunteered to push her car with his patrol car into the gas station. When it didn’t make it all the way he got out of his car and physically pushed it the rest of the way. He acted like it was no big deal. However, to us it was a big deal. He choose to be kind and help when he didn’t have to. So thank you Woodstock PD for having such amazing officers!”

The department was also impressed with Officer Keane saying, “We think he’s pretty amazing too!”
