VIDEO: Officer's Daughter Fights To Save His Job

The 11-year-old daughter of an Anderson (Ind.) Police officer took to YouTube to lobby city leaders considering budget cuts not to lay off her father.

Mariah Grant posted "Little Girl Saving Her Daddy" on Monday, reports Fox 59. In the 4-minute video, Grant can be seen holding up notecards saying that her father, Officer Jamie Grant, has always dreamt of being a cop.

On Thursday, the City Council discussed a budget that calls for the elimination of seven officers and 20 firefighters, reports the Herald Bulletin. Dozens of residents protested the cuts, including Kristian Grant, Mariah's mother, who gathered 1,400 signatures opposing the layoffs.

Officer Grant has served the agency for two years.

I THOUGHT THAT THE VIDEO WAS VERY TOUCHING. I'M A POLICE OFFICER IN EAST CHICAGO, INDIANA. OUR MAYOR WAS TALKING ABOUT LAYING OFF PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICER'S AS WELL, BUT HE, ALONG WITH THE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS DECIDED TO USE CASINO FUNDS. I FIND IT OFFENSIVE THAT GOV. MITCH DANIELS CAN BOAST ABOUT A BUDGET SURPLUS, BUT IT'S CITIES IN THE STATE THAT NEED FUNDING FOR BASIC NEED'S, LIKE POLICE AND FIRE. I HOPE THE MAYOR OF ANDERSON AND THE CITY COUNCIL CAN FIND FUNDING TO KEEP THOSE POLICE AND FIREMEN. MAYBE THEY SHOULD VOTE REDUCE THEIR SALARIES AND PERK'S SO THOSE PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICER'S CAN KEEP THEIR JOB'S.
