Police officer shows he is a father first, officer second
UTAH -- A Utah police officer's simple act of kindness toward a fellow father is winning hearts across the web.
Orem Police Officer Norris was waiting to testify for a courtcase last week when he saw a father trying to reign his rambunctious 2-year-old daughter in before he had to go into the courtroom.
When it came time for the father to go before the judge, he soon learned children were not allowed inside the courtroom and was faced with another issue -- Who would care for his young daughter while he tended to the issue?
That is when Officer Norris came to his fellow father's side and played with the little girl while she waited for her daddy.
Officer Norris walked the girl around the lobby, got her treats from other deputies at the front door and showed her cartoons on his cellphone video.
She climbed into the officer's lap and fell asleep before her father came back.
And it was all caught on security camera for the world to see and share.
