Cops Kids play soccer Screenshot WBRC

When someone called the police to make kids stop playing on a patch of green space and go inside, the cops responded — and joined the game.

The Birmingham, Alabama Police Department had been getting routine calls from someone demanding they stop a group of kids from playing soccer on a lawn at a local business. The business lets the kids play there because the nearest park is two miles away.

When a call came in last week, Officer Jordan Burke led a group of his fellow officers to the makeshift soccer pitch, and joined the kids for a match. They returned the next day and Burke posted a video of it to Facebook.

“Please stop calling the police telling us to tell children to stop playing outside,” Burke wrote on Facebook. “This will be the result every time.”

Burke says he was influenced as a child when a cop took time away from patrol to play football with him and his friends and he hopes to accomplish the same. The kids are just excited to have more players on their teams.
