Officer Norris waiting to testify in a hearing when he saw a very energetic 2-year-old girl who was also waiting on her father who was in court.

The father couldn’t leave his daughter at home and children aren’t allowed in the courtroom so Officer Norris decided to babysit the little girl.

According to the Facebook post,

“The little girl took to Officer Norris as he walked her around, getting drinks of water and treats from the Deputies at the front door. He pulled up some cartoons on his cell phone and the little girl climbed up onto his lap and she must’ve been worn out from all running around she had done because she quickly fell asleep on Officer Norris’ lap.”
