Officer returns Elmo to 3-year-old to keep her safe after 'completing' police academy

The Blasdell Police Department gave a special shoutout on their Facebook page to 3-year-old Gabby. 

They say that Gabby gave the department several thin blue and red line flags and an Elmo doll.

Gabby's mother posted an update to this already adorable situation and said that the Blasdell Police Department actually returned the Elmo doll back to Gabby. Police told Gabby that Elmo completed police academy, is now in full uniform, and wants to come to keep her safe.
