Family thanks MPD officers for kind gesture to young boy
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – A family is thanking Milwaukee Police officers after they went the extra mile to make a little boy’s day.
The boy, Mason, was on the dock at the South Shore Yacht Club when a police boat pulled up with its lights on.
“He hit the lights and he hit the siren," Mason’s uncle Perry Bares said. "What was happening is they were coming for him [Mason], they were kind of showing off you know."
The police boat pulled all the way up to the dock and officers greeted Mason.
“It’s very positive that they do that stuff,” Bares said.
Before they left, officers gave Mason a badge to keep.
