I'm a father, Cub Scout leader, soccer coach, and the city manager of Sikeston, Missouri. I use this blog to highlight what's going on in the City organization and in the community - including the great things City employees are doing behind the scenes that most residents never get to see. Please visit me on Instagram where I post more frequently: https://www.instagram.com/jmdoug/?hl=en.
Recently you may have seen a viral news story and photo of a police officer comforting and distracting a toddler while other officers were tending to a fatal vehicle accident in the background. What you may not realize is that scenes like that happen everyday in the law enforcement world, even locally here in Sikeston. Above, a photo of Sikeston Public Safety Officer Scott Kim tending to a child after responding to a car accident scene. And sometimes our local officers's feel good stories do get recognized by the media as well, like this story of Sikeston officers playing basketball with some local kids: http://www.kfvs12.com/clip/11624402/raw-sikeston-dps-officers-play-basketball
