Young Boy Leaves Note Thanking Officers On Police Car In Manchester
Police officers have responded to a lovely note written to them by a young boy called Adam.
The officers from Greater Manchester Police have now invited Adam to come down to their station and meet them after he left the heart-warming note thanking them for 'saving our lives' under the windscreen wipers of one of their vehicles.
The note, which was discovered on the car in Manchester city centre, read: "To Police Officers. Thank you for saving lives and keeping us safe.
"I really like the police because they are kind and when I wave at them they always wave back."
It was simply signed: "From Adam".
Now, the officers want to find the youngster to repay his gratitude.
On other side of the letter was a drawing of a copper with labelled pepper spray, radio and even a taser.
The police force were quick to point out that they won't be letting the young lad use that if he comes to meet them.

In a Facebook post, GMP City Centre has appealed for Adam's parents to come forward so the can come down to the station and see them.
Inspector John Middleton said: "Dear Adam. If you are reading this I would hope someone is showing you because you are probably too young to be on Facebook/Twitter.
"I just wanted to say thanks on behalf of the City Centre Policing team and other colleagues in GMP for your lovely card and kind words. A great reminder to us of why we do what we do."
They continued: "I especially love your picture of a Police Car and Officer with a list of equipment.
"Please ask an adult to e-mail us if you would like to come and visit our team. We would love to meet you and you could sit in a Police car and try some of the equipment on - although I'm afraid we can't let you play with a TASER."
That seems fair enough.
If they're being sensible, they shouldn't let him mess about with the pepper spray, either. The dangers of that particular folly were exposed recently when a dad got his mate to spray him in the eyes with it.
Stephen Smith, a postman from Widnes, said that he bought the spray online from China and assumed that it 'wouldn't be that'.
He was - of course - mistaken. The 40-year-old admitted that it was the worst pain he'd ever been in.
