A distressed and distraught mother requested police assistance on Saturday afternoon after she inadvertently locked her baby in her car.
The mother flagged down a passing Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit after she was unable to free the baby from the car.
The motorcycle cop who was flagged down by the mother called for another member of the Road Policing Unit team who was equipped with specialist lock-picking equipment.
A handful of officers are trained to use the specialist equipment which is not commonly issued to Roads Policing Unit officers.
After a short period, the mother was reunited with her baby thanks to the efforts of the officers at the scene.
The baby was not harmed and, due to the short time that the baby was in the car, was not distressed by the incident.
The image, shared by @DerbyshireRPU on Twitter, was taken after the baby was reunited with her mother.
