Cutest Kid Cop Raises Eyebrows During Nursing Home Visits

Senior citizens sadly can be forgotten once they move into a nursing home, especially if they outlive their own loved ones. So whenever someone special stops by for a visit, everyone is excited.
Therapy pets, church youth groups and even preschoolers sometimes pop by to greet the seniors and spend some much needed time with them. In Lenexa, Kansas, one very special guest is welcomed with open arms by residents of local nursing homes, even though he issues them tickets.
Honorary police officer Oliver Davis, six, dreams of becoming an actual police officer when he grows up. He describes his heroes in very flattering terms.
"They help people and they are nice to people."
Officer Oliver decided to branch out from his police duties and show his kindness to residents at local nursing homes. His mom Brandi Davis told Fox 4 that he sees it as a way of giving back.
“He believes he`s a real police officer, and since he can`t work at the police station yet, this is his way of helping out the community."
Before they stop by a nursing home, Brandi allows Oliver to pick out flowers to take with him. He also issues tickets like any officer would, but his go to the seniors for "being too cute."
“He told me his New Year`s resolution was to go to more nursing homes and to hand out more flowers."
Monty Duerksen, 84, resides at Westchester Village. His was the fourth facility they'd visited yet this month and the seniors loved it.
“He brings a lot of love to these nice people."
Mom lavished praise upon her son who relishes his visits with the seniors, too. It's really making a difference in his life and theirs.
“I can`t stop smiling because I see how happy he makes them and how he got in the car after the last retirement home and said, 'I feel so good right now,' so it makes me feel like we`re doing something right, and it makes me feel great that he is being impacted also by this."
At every visit, Oliver asks each resident if they need a hug. He loves every second of it.
“It makes me feel good."
Even cuter is that Officer Oliver was given a police uniform and official police motorcycle that he rides into the room for each visit. Everyone gets a kick out of seeing him zoom in.
See for yourself how happy these seniors are after Oliver enters the room. What a wonderful little guy!
