Police officers have a softer side, despite usually seeing the worst of human behavior. In Texas, a dashcam captured this heart-warming moment of an officer taking time out of fighting crime to play catch with a lonely child on the street.

The video was posted on the Rosenberg Police Department's Facebook page with the message 'While a 2 minute game of football might not mean anything, to some it could mean everything!'

The officer has been praised for reaching out to the community and helping to engage with the 10-year-old, who now says he wants to be a policeman or a professional football player.
