The job of a police officer isn't always about writing tickets, arresting suspects and keeping the peace in the neighborhood. Sometimes it's just about community involvement.

Little Falls police officer Matthew Mills took time out of his day to toss the football around with the neighborhood kids.

"Just looked out the window and freaked out when I saw a police car parked right in front of our house. I knew my son was out front playing football with the neighborhood kids and thought he might be in trouble. Turns out Officer Mills is playing quarterback for the kids," writes Caleb Lewis on Facebook.

This isn't the first time Officer Mills has tossed the ball around with the neighborhood kids. "It's just the first time we've seen it," says Lewis.

"Kids were smiling, laughing, and having a blast. It was beautiful to witness," says Kelly Jude.
