NY Police Officer Who Bought Homeless Man Boots Receives Promotion
November 27, 2013
If you're still wondering whether kindness pays off, let this be another reminder. In a story we covered last December, a New York City Police Officer went out of his way to purchase a barefoot, homeless man a pair of boots and thermal socks.

This week, Larry DePrimo was promoted to detective. "It's a dream come true, this shield is one of the most coveted shields I think in the country, maybe even the world." DePrimo said. "I look down and it's still unreal to me."
It's important to state that DePrimo is not receiving this promotion because of something nice he did last year. His character and work ethic speak for themselves.

DePrimo was asked if he still receives attention from the public for last year's good deed.
"You know the attention has died down...I don't think the effects it had on people has ever stopped," DePrimo said. "I still will get 'what you did inspired me to do a great thing for another person,' that's fantastic."
