An image, shared on Facebook by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department shows a little boy and girl in police uniform down on their knees next to a police car praying for their daddy to get home safe.
This comes in the wake of a number of brazen police killings sparked by the shooting and subsequent deaths of two black men by police officers in Minnesota and Louisiana.
The caption of the photo which was taken by their mother reads: ‘Praying their father and all police officers return home safely.’
The photo which has been shared and liked thousands of times echoes another that was shared back in March by Cleveland County police officer Jordan Perkins. It features his two children joining him in his car for a prayer before his shift.
