(Chicago Tribune) Rosalyn Baldwin bolted up the sidewalk to Hammond Police Department as Chief John Doughty waited with open arms.
“Oh look, she’s running!” one of the smiling police officers waiting for Baldwin said when they saw her arrive.
Receiving a hug from a police officer like Doughty, who scooped her up to welcome her to Hammond, is “awesome sauce,” the 8-year-old Rosalyn said.
