SOUTHPORT, Ind. (WISH) – Southport Police officers are donating an electric toy police car to a three-year-old supporter.

Officers are giving Sam the toy police car because he has visited the Southport Police Department at least once a week to thank officers for their service, as well as to receive his police sticker the officers hand out. Sam even got his own police officer uniform to wear during his visits, and he has even started bringing friends along.
