ALTAVISTA, Va. (WFXR) — Police officers are there to protect and serve, but one young boy decided he wanted to pay a special tribute to officers eating at an Altavista restaurant.

While eating lunch on Wednesday, April 28, a group of officers with the Altavista Police Department were given a card by the boy, thanking them for their service.

In a Facebook post by the department, the boy — identified as Ivan — was told that his card “brightened everyone’s day.”
