Police Officers Get Call About Kids Sledding in 'Dangerous' Area, But They Join In on the Fun

Combined Shape

We tend to view first responders and officers of the law as sober and serious. We may mot often picture them with smiles on their faces or joy in their hearts.

But if we stop and take a moment to really think about it, to ask ourselves a question — why did they choose their careers? — we might realize who many of these men and women really are.

They’re servants. They became a police officer, a firefighter, an EMT or joined the military to help people in their communities.

So while we see them as the ones who face danger or give us speeding tickets, maybe even too grown up to have a little fun, we’re forgetting the reason they got into their business in the first place.

Social media has its downfalls, but one thing that’s great about sharing online is that we get the opportunity to watch first responders do the things we might least suspect. Ice bucket challenge, anyone?

From lip sync battles to flash mob dancing, those sober and serious officers we picture become just another member of our cities and hometowns. They help those around them simply by bringing smiles to their faces.

When a pair of police officers from Noblesville, Indiana, received a call about a group of kids sledding in a “dangerous area,” they decided to do their duty and check out the situation.

What no one expected was what they would do following their inspection. Once they discovered all was well, and that the kids were “being safe and responsible,” the jovial do-gooders decided they couldn’t leave without checking the hill out for themselves.

The Noblesville Police Department posted a video of the fun on Facebook. Watch this duo “secure the area” in the best way possible.

“For safety reasons and stuff,” the post says. We’re nodding our heads and winking over here. Your secret’s safe with us.

It looks like these officers’ break was well deserved, too. According to a separate Facebook post on their page, their area looks forward to its fair share of icy weather.

I’d say a little sledding never hurt anyone, and with the amount of snow they may see, sledding may end up being the only way to travel.

Do you think these police officers did their duty?

Have you witnessed first responders in your community loosening up and joining in the fun? I’m glad the onlookers in the background of this video cheered these officers on as they went “dashing through the snow.” What better way to say “thank you,” after all?
