During a dark week in the news when we saw the profession in a negative light, here’s another story to help us remember the humanity of police officers.
Officer C. Hicks of Tulsa, Oklahoma recalled a memorable moment that happened while on duty late Saturday night. It was posted on the Tulsa Police Department Facebook page and forwarded to the Good News Network:
“I figure it’s important to every once in a while share some of the cool opportunities that are afforded being a policeman out on the beat overnight. With that, last night I was called to a house in regards to telephone threats this nice family was randomly receiving. I took care of the call, but couldn’t help but notice the boy all of about 3 in his pajamas just staring at me wide eyed, mouth open, who was about to be put to bed. While talking, I felt a tiny hand grab mine, and pull me further in to the living room. He had a children’s dinosaur book in his hands, and proceeded to point at it, smile, hand me the book, and sit down.
“It made my night at work, and hopefully his too.”
