What An Officer Does After Seeing a Kid Playing Ball Has Sent the Dash-Cam Video Viral

A Texas police officer was patrolling the streets of Rosenburg Saturday when he noticed a young boy playing ball by himself. He decided to do something about it.

The officer can be seen in a dash-camera video stopping his car and it appears he says a few words to the boy, who walks off screen.

The next thing you see is the kid running, attempting to catch the football the officer has just tossed for him. The child returns the ball to the officer, who then tosses the kid another pass.

The two appear to play catch for a bit, reportedly as part of efforts by authorities to reach out young people in the community.

According to KTRK, footage of the incident is "spreading across social media." It was initially posted to the Rosenberg Police Department's Facebook page with the caption, "While a 2 minute game of football might not mean anything, to some it could mean everything!"
