Officer Joe White from the Tallahassee Police Department responded to a 911 call from a 6-year-old boy who called 911 without his mom knowing. He told the dispatcher that his mom was mad at him and he was lonely.
Officer White arrived on scene and the young man asked Officer White to be his friend. Officer White took the time to explain how 911 is used and how it’s for emergencies. Then Officer White said he’d always be a friend.
The young man got a stuffed animal, got to sit in the patrol car and got to spend some time with Officer White!
Jack and Carolyn talked to officer Rachelle Denmark about officer White and the experience that has now bonded them forever with the boy! Listen below.
