Nassau County police officer honored for good deed

On Wednesday, Nassau County police officer Joseph D'Ercole of the Seventh Precinct was honored for going above and beyond the call of duty to help a Massapequa resident.  After a homeowner reported to police the damage to her lawn, Officer D'Ercole delivered three bags of topsoil, a bag of grass seed and a large house plant with a note stating he would be available to help spread out the soil and seed.  (Credit: Howard Schnapp)
