We received this via private message early this morning and wanted to share it with the community. Officers building positive relationships with children and the community is a vital role for law enforcement and we love to hear about moments like this.
"A huge thank you to 2 officers who spent a few minutes of their time to make my granddaughter feel so special! Too many kids are afraid of the police! We teach A'lanah that the police are here to help us! They gave her a teddy bear and she loves it!! Thank you officers for taking time with our little ones."
