PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A photo capturing a lot of attention online shows a Portland Police officer helping a pregnant homeless woman.

The picture was posted on the Portland Police Bureau's Instagram page.

It shows Officer Jason Jones talking with a pregnant woman inside a tent. He was discussing proper nutrition and medical care with her for her baby. 

In fact, Jones formed a pilot program bringing together the city's resources to address issues surrounding homeless camps. The group has brought garbage services and sharps containers to several camps, and it also plans to hold a social services fair for the city's homeless.
