New York officers give makeover to man who was “down on his luck”

ROME, New York (WCMH)– Police officers in Rome, New York are going viral after helping out a man who was just “down on his luck.”

The department posted pictures and a description on their Facebook page Tuesday morning explaining what happened.

They said that Bobby told officers he would love a haircut and a warm shower. They were able to give him that, and then some.

Officers provided Bobby with a haircut, shave, shower, and a new wardrobe made up of donated clothing.

The department said that an Officer Page helped make it all possible, and Bobby couldn’t thank them enough for all their efforts. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
