A young girl in western New York went out of her way for a police officer to make sure he'll never be alone while on patrol, reports Fox News.
The Blasdell (NY) Police Department said in a Facebook post last Tuesday that a 3-year-old girl named Gabby stopped by to drop off thin blue and red line flags to police and fire officials.
"Blasdell Police and Fire Departments thank Gabby, a 3 year old village resident who gave the thin blue and red line flags and Elmo to the departments," the post read. "We thank Gabby and her family for the support and nice gesture."
Gabby's mom said the little girl wanted to give the officer Elmo because he "works all alone. He needs a friend."
Blasdell PD then returned Elmo to the girl, saying he had completed the police academy and was going to live with her to keep her safe.
Elmo is now back in Gabby's room and the girl says she wants to be a police officer when she grows up.
