Boy Sends Police Department Thank You Letter For 'Protecting Our City' And 'Cleaning Our Streets'

'When I get old enough, I will enrol.'

A young boy wrote a thank you letter to his local police department and it seems he has a pretty strong view of the violent side of the job.

The boy drew a photo of a policeman tasering a “gang member” who was laying on the ground.

He was writing to the department to thank them for “protecting our city and cleaning our streets”.

A policeman’s friend in Los Angeles, US, shared the note on Imgur on Thursday 7 September and explained that a local school had sent in letters of appreciation to the department.

“Thank you police department for protecting our city and cleaning our streets,” Josh’s note read.

“When I get old enough, I will enroll [sic] in the explorer programme and become a police officer.

“Thanks, Josh.”

We can imagine receiving notes like this from children are a bit of light relief for men and women in the police department.
