911 Call By Autistic Child Makes For Sweet Moment With Officers

Posted at 5:48 PM, Jun 01, 2018

Columbia Police officers expected to teach some kids a lesson after they called 911, but once at the home they learned the children's intentions were innocent. 

In a Facebook post, the department said Columbia Police dispatch received a call that sounded like kids playing with a phone.

Two officers responded to the address "to warn the children and parents about the “misuse of 911.""

However, when they got there, they learned an autistic 4-year-old named Lenox was just trying to call the police to "tell us how much he loves police officers."

The officers talked with Lenox and his 2-year-old brother Seth, letting them sit and play in the police cars.
