Allendale NJ, Allendale Police Officer Alex Helmer had a day on the job he won’t soon forget after helping deliver a baby at a borough home. While on patrol, Officer Helmer was flagged down by a motorist, the baby’s father, who was rushing to get home to meet his wife who was in active labor. When Officer Helmer arrived at the home, baby Amelia was making her entrance into the world. Officer Helmer used his training to help mom deliver a beautiful, happy, and healthy baby girl! Mom and Amelia are doing great. Officer Helmer and Amelia now have a lifelong bond. We are excited to see Amelia grow and congratulate mom, dad, and big brother!
