With the assistance of Duhamel, all 10 ducklings were reunited with their mother and escorted safely across the road.  

"One of the greatest and simultaneously most challenging aspects of police work is the unpredictability of the job… You never know what call for service or new challenge you may be faced with on any given day," the department post on its Facebook page.
