Using social media, Scales asked for help in finding the officer who saved her life that fateful day when she was a child. Despite her best efforts, time went by and she still had no clues. She had just about given up hope in finding the officer. Then, she read a comment.

The comment came from Sergeant Jennifer Jones of the Kansas City Police Department in Missouri. She knew who Scales was looking for, and arranged for the two of them to finally meet after so many years. But would the officer, who undoubtedly saved many lives, remember the little girl who used to wave at him every morning?

She had nothing to worry about. He actually “thought about her, and wondered whatever happened with her.” He was excited to meet her. So, the two of them agreed on a time and place. Then, when Scales saw him, she started crying. And she had a lot to tell her childhood “guardian angel” about her life.

It turns out that Scales is now a police officer in Houston. She had followed in her “guardian angel’s” footsteps. But now that she knew who he was, she got a personalized bracelet of his name with the words: “A True Hero.” This served as a reminder as to why she became a cop. And his influence had done so much more.

Stories of others who were helped by Jeff Colvin poured in after the Kansas City Police posted the touching story on Facebook. This made him feel great about his decision to become a police officer. But Scales had one more thing to add in regards to all the positive comments about Colvin.
