Police Officers Stop Kids Who Are Sledding, But…

It’s not what you think. As North Carolina’s PeeDeePost dttbdkzyii

PINEHURST — Two police officers with the Village of Pinehurst in Moore County stopped by a hill on which local children were sledding — and asked if they could get in on the fun.

The roads were covered with ice on Tuesday, conditions that kept the cars in Pinehurst away. The neighborhood kids went out to play…Sometimes the best part of being out on patrol is the chance to make a good impression on those that you protect…Even when it means being a big kid right along with them! Well played officers…well played!!

Yes, that’s the whole article. Kudos to a paper/website that would run an article like that — so small, so great! – L.

Up with Pinehurst and its cops!

    Good for them! The police should be part of the community!

    That is proper community.

    I thought this was a very good example of allowing children to be children and police being police by being there to protect and serve like they are supposed to. If we were able to have that in more neighborhoods, children would make good choices and feel safe in their neighborhoods.

    That is how it should be.

    2 of my cousins are cops, both with incredibly goofy, childlike personalities. They totally would have done this, too. Yay for common sense fun!

    Yay for the serving part of “Protect and Serve”. Serve me up a big snow ball of fun!

    What a heartwarming story.
    Two responsible adults in every sense of the words – sharing with kids a simple joy in life.
    Building trust, community, good fellowship…..all in fun.
    Just as kids have always known how to do.
    And would do infinitely more of….if they were allowed to.

    Sometimes we need to have a little mercy for the uniform –
    be it the colors of the law
    or a well-padded snowsuit.

    My smile for the day.

    Every Good Friday I used to build model rockets with my nephews and then on Easter Sunday we would go over to the park and launch them. It never failed that someone called the Police and said that we were setting off fireworks. Model rockets are legal where I live and when the officer showed up and saw what we were doing there was never a problem except for one thing. The officer always asked if he or she could launch one and then they wouldn’t leave.
