PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what can you do for others?” The 16th District Philadelphia Police officers took that question to heart.

“This is the perfect example of what a King Day of Service should be,” one woman said. “This is public service, this is serving one another. This is interacting with one another at its best.”
