CAPE CORAL, Fla. (WTXL) - An act of kindness from a little girl was repaid with a teddy bear from a Florida police officer.
The Cape Coral Police Department shared a video of the encounter on Facebook.
The post says that a little girl held open the door for Office Patrick Dowdle as he was walking out of a Perkins restaurant. As he passed, the officer noticed that the girl looked hesitant because he was in uniform.
So, the officer decided to repay the little girl's kindness with a blue teddy bear from his car.
When the officer walked back up with the teddy bear with his body cam on, the little girl was again holding the door open, this time for two more people coming into the restaurant.
"Officer Dowdle was happy to give her the teddy bear in hopes to build trust and in appreciation for her being so helpful to others," the post said.
