The torn fabric and sharp metal concerned Blackwell, who rallied her squad to find a way to get a new one.
A trip to Walmart and a new one was purchased by #HillsboroughRocks. After officers assembled it, the kids were back to playing on a brand new trampoline with all of the safety features.
It didn’t take long for people in Hillsborough to take notice, and numerous positive comments flooded the Hillsborough police Facebook page.
