Young Boy Calls Police to Show Them His Toys

A four-year-old New Zealand boy who dialed the emergency number to ask police to come and see his toys was surprised with a special visit from an officer following the adorable call.

In audio released on October 15 by the Southern Police District, which said it was “too cute not to share,” the boy from South Island is heard telling the dispatcher about his toys.

“Police lady,” he says in the recording. “Can I tell you something? I’ve got some toys for you. Come over and see them.”

A man is then heard on the line explaining to the operator that the boy, who he said was helping out while his mother was sick, had “snuck out” to make the call. Police dispatch then put out a call for any available units to visit the home.

An officer, identified as Constable Kurt, arrived at the house where police said he was shown an “array of toys” and in turn showed the boy the patrol car with the lights on – and gave the child and his parents an “educational chat” about using 111 for emergencies only.
