McCordsville Police Officer Jeffrey Herber takes time out of his patrol to stop in and say hi during Bennet’s birthday outdoor birthday party. Bennet was turning 4 years old and really enjoys police cars and as luck would have it Officer Herber was more than glad to oblige Bennet’s wishes. From the smiles on everyone’s faces, it would appear that Bennet, his friends and family and Officer Herber enjoyed the festivities.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Lt. Aaron Allan's family and to our fellow brothers and sisters of the Southport Police Department.
