INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — After what children might see as a very scary situation, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department SWAT officer took the time to make sure nearby children knew the police were there to protect them.

Jutta Allen sent a video she captured on her cell phone that shows one of IMPD’s SWAT officers making friends with her two-year-old and three-year-old grand kids. They were outside their home during a SWAT standoff across the street. It ended peacefully, and that officer went over, in full SWAT gear, to talk to the kids and give them glow sticks.

“They were actually afraid of the police prior to this, and he took the time to come over here,” Allen said.
