Kids give donuts, lemonade to police in Johnson County

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Two kids in Johnson County area gave donuts and lemonade to police officers Friday.

Dozens of officers from all over Johnson County spent the morning with the kids.

Oliver Davis is six years old. He dressed in his Leawood Police Department uniform as he poured lemonade for the officers.

“I want to remind police officers that I don't need Batman, Superman or Spiderman, I just need these guys,” said Oliver Davis.

Oliver is no stranger to police in the area. Many of them met him at an event a few weeks ago.

“He loves police. I had to be here. He gives so much to the police officers of Johnson County, so I had to come to give back,” said Caroline Van Cil with the Prairie Village Police Department.

To see a child that’s so young discussing the importance of police officers means a lot to Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.

“It’s awesome. I came down the street, and I was shocked how many agencies were here. That is a great thing to get together and share the love,” said Chief Donchez.

Brandi Davis, Oliver’s mother, said the boy might get a full-size, official version of his police uniform one day. 

"He has always wanted to be a police officer, and he has such a relationship with the police officers," said Davis. "They've been so kind and included him in a lot of stuff."

Even though being a police officer is his dream, he says he won’t dress as one for Halloween. On that day, he will wear a Transformers costume.
