ABC News reported on Oct. 20 that in Wellington, New Zealand, police went above and beyond for a certain emergency call.

When a dispatcher answered the call, a little voice started out, "Hi. Police lady?"

The 4-year-old then went on to say, "I've got some toys for you. Come over and see them."

Around then, an adult took the phone, confirming that it was not an emergency, but the dispatcher sent Constable Kurt over anyway.

The little boy showed off his toys to the officer and had a "good, educational chat" about the use of the emergency number (111 in New Zealand).

"He did have cool toys," Constable Kurt confirmed.

He reciprocated by turning on his patrol car's lights for the boy. [ABC News, 10/20/2021]
