Watch the heartwarming moment when several police officers take a few moments (in between calls) to pay a visit to young William.
William tragically lost his dad only days before his 7th birthday. William and his family look after retired police dogs, so when these police dog handlers heard about the tough time William and his family were having, they stopped by to drop off a special gift.
As no 999 calls came in during the visit, the officers were able to make sure that William and his family had a special birthday, despite their tragic loss.
As William is an aspiring police dog handler himself, the officers knew that a quick visit would mean so much to William.
Happy Birthday William, from everybody here at Emergency Services News! We can’t wait to report on all of the fantastic and exciting things you will end up doing when you join the police and became a police dog handler x
