“Being a police officer is not a job, it is a service”, so began the talk with Federico Solís, which patrols the streets in the San Martín area. Belongs to Motorized Prevention Group (GPM) of the province of Buenos Aires.

Solís was recorded this Tuesday doing what he preaches with his words: in a queue at an ATM, he put a mask on a retired man with an unprotected face. One of her daughters was the one who shared the video on TN and The People.

In this time of quarantine by the coronavirusThe policemen, together with the health personnel, are the ones who are in the line of fire every day, fighting the pandemic. Many days go by without seeing their families, and in many cases they are discriminated against. But this image is a clear example of the vocation of service for which they once swore.

“It was one more day of work, when with a colleague we approached a queue that had formed in front of an ATM and I saw that the grandfather was very unprotected. He was holding a fence and with a bag in his hand. I go up to him and ask him if he didn’t mind if I put a chinstrap on him. He said no, so I took one out of my vest and put it on. He told me ‘thank you’ in tears “, detailed the police.

There they spend several days without seeing their loved ones and preparing to patrol the streets and enforce quarantine, but also to help those in need.

“My dad is a very supportive guy. We live in Esteban Echeverría, a place that is flooded and is always ready to help the neighbors. Those values instilled in me and my brothers, “said Fiorella, who is a policeman of the City of Buenos Aires.

Solís was born in Goya, Corrientes, and in 1990 he arrived with his parents, who were looking for work, in Buenos Aires. He decided to be a police officer to give back to the province everything he gave to his family. “What I do is with lots of love. So to the boys who start studying this degree I say that we are at the service of others and that we have to do our best
