It's always nice to tell people how much you appreciate them.

A little boy called a 911 call center in Virginia to say thank you for all the work the police do. The call came just one day after a police officer died after responding to a call during her first shift in the town of Woodbridge.

The call was certainly heartfelt:

This is because you're just polices are great people 'cause they save people's lives, no matter what. They come and they seem nice. You're, you're, you're very great. You're just a great person. You belong with great people."

People are often reminded to call 911 only in the case of an emergency, but we have a hunch this is one time authorities are willing to overlook that.
