A little goes a long way, and this officer obviously knows that.

Peter Ball, who lives on the west side of Detroit, thought that something was wrong when he looked out his window and saw a police car outside his window...and then he realized that the officer was playing with the local kids.

They played for just a few minutes - after some light conversation, they did dueling push-ups, had a race down the street and played a quick game of basketball. But that was enough to make an impression on the kids.

What we love even more is that the officer, Darren Weathers, couldn't be reached for comment by the news stations - he obviously didn't want the attention - but he shared the videos to his own Facebook page, where they've gone viral.

Thank you, officer! Positive change for our neighbors to the south.
