Officer Takes Break to Play Basketball with Neighborhood Kids

A Georgia community is praising the officers who serve and protect them. One officer in LaGrange was recently spotted taking a break from his nightly patrol to play with some neighborhood children.

Tuesday night, the LaGrange Police Department shared a picture on Facebook that was sent in to them. The picture shows Officer Fowler playing basketball with several kids in the Benjamin Harvey Homes community, which is a housing authority. 



Several of their Facebook followers have posted positive comments below the photo.

"Well we already know we have amazing cops in our community," said Facebook user Atlanta Nichols. "Now other communities need to stand up and repeat what our role models here do."
