LONGMONT, CO (KDVR/CNN) – A Colorado police officer helped a little girl feel more at home in her new house by helping her check the property for monsters.

When 4-year-old Sidney Fahrenbruch and her family moved into a new house in Longmont, CO, the girl thought the home was OK during the day, but at night, it was scary.

"I heard sounds when people weren't up,” Sidney said.

Sidney’s mother says the girl was concerned there were monsters in the house,

Even though Sidney, an aspiring police officer, says she wasn’t scared and would just punch the monsters in the face, she asked a professional from the Longmont Police Department for help: Officer David Bonday.

"She met Officer Bonday and asked him if he would come search for monsters,” said Sidney’s mother, Megan Fahrenbruch.

Although Bonday had reportedly never been on a monster hunt before, he agreed to assist in the investigation.

"He gave her his flashlight, and they checked every inch of the house for monsters,” Sidney’s mom said.

Sidney says the search didn’t turn up any monsters, but now, she feels better about the house.

"It's just amazing, the confidence he's given her. We're truly grateful to live in a town where the police officers will pay a kid any attention,” Sidney’s mom said.

Sidney calls Bonday her best friend and hopes to be just like him one day.

"She wants to grow up and be a cop and help other people find monsters as well,” Sidney’s mother said.
