"Are you the ice cream truck?" said the little boy. "No, but I can be if you want."

Facebook has fallen in love with two Loves Park police officers. The Loves Park Police Department shared on their Facebook page a sweet story involving Officer Kahly and Sergeant Wilson.

Sunday, July 5, officers responded to a suspicious vehicle call near Mulford and Riverside. When they were finished with the call, they spoke to residents of the area.

Loves Park Police Department goes on to say,

After knocking on a door & being greeted by a mother, a little boy quickly followed her outside, asking his mom if it was the ice cream truck. One of the officers told the boy it wasn't, but it could be, if he wanted it to be.

Most of the family came outside & gathered around the squads. The little boy looking for the ice cream truck, touched the hearts of the officers, when he told them that he wanted to be a police officer when he grew up.

It's very refreshing to have a young boy express his interest in growing up to be a police officer. We are grateful to the family!

 

How sweet is that! The young boy and his family posed for photos with the officers, both inside and outside of the squad. I think it's safe to say these officers went above and beyond making this young boy seem so special.

The boy named Isaiah's mother posted on Facebook her delight of the interaction with the officers.

This is my family and ,I want to say a huge heartfelt thank you to these two officers. You brought so much joy to our little ones tonight. Isaiah (the one who the story is about) has not stopped talking about you both. I watched as you interacted with all of the children tonight and it was better than watching them on Chirstmas morning. In april of this year another LPPD Officer stopped by on Isaiahs birthday while we were having his party and spent time with the children. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child and tonight what you two amazing Officers did was sow seeds of trust and pride into our children and that is truly what every child needs. Is adults that believe in them Thank you both from the bottom of this mothers heart for taking the time to believe in our children. May God Bless you both and keep you safe.

 

Such a heart warming story! Bravo to the Loves Park Police for going above and beyond the call of duty.
