It’s the joke that must be made — Portland Police not only protect, but they serve… pizza. Because after a Pizza Hut delivery driver was injured in a car crash, the cops made a special effort to ensure that his customers didn’t go hungry, and delivered up the pizza in his stead.

The driver was involved in a collision on Sept. 1 and was hurt (but is now doing better) reports KOIN, so two officers at the scene picked up the torch and went with it.

The customers say they were a bit taken aback to open the door to two cops, especially since they’d already gotten a replacement pizza after contacting Pizza Hut and hearing about the accident. The officers arrived just as they were sitting down to eat their second, half-price pizza.

“They turn around to leave, and I said, ‘whoa, whoa, whoa, – I got to get a picture of this,” the customer said. No one is going to believe Portland police delivering a pizza.’ So that’s the picture everyone saw.”

He said he wants to recognize the efforts of the two police for going out of their way to bring dinner home.

“I wanted these officers to get a little recognition because these officers went above and beyond,” he explained.
