Officer Scott Alves brings smiles to youngster with cruiser visit

We are so proud of Officer Scott Alves for making an extra effort that brought a smile to a four-year-old boy.

Allicia Swain reports that her son was outside when Officer Alves stopped his cruiser when he saw how excited the boy was to see him. Officer Alves showed the boy the inside of the cruiser and spent a few minutes talking to him, which made both the child’s day and his mother’s.

“Taking 10 minutes out of his day to make a very sweet 4-year-old happy has to be one of the best things I’ve seen in awhile,” Allicia reports.”Parker hasn’t stopped talking about that day! (And now lights up and waves to every officer we see.) It helps to solidify our teachings of respect and admiration for our men and women in blue.”
