How It All Began

This incredible bond between Cpl. Fleming and the children of South Hill, VA, began one day when he was closing out a call while standing outside his cruiser. Fleming saw a little girl who was walking with her mother, and they were heading his way.

The little girl was excited to see a police officer out on the street, not inside his patrol car cruising the neighborhood. She started waving at Fleming and was pulling her mother in his direction wanting to meet the officer.
