“I can encourage children to go to school,” he told the catdumb.com website. “I asked for permission from my boss and he supported the idea,” he added.
“My daughter likes him”, posted a follower named New Nitikul. “Her eyes went wide with excitement when she saw him. Her face looked pretty sad on days she didn’t see him. She asked me ‘Where is that policeman?’”
Since his pictures were shared, many thanked him for delighting their children – and called for more. more.
“I’ll do it again. See you on Thursday,” the officer wrote on the @tiny.NakhonNayok Facebook page. “I’m off on Wednesday. Come for selfies and thank you all for liking what I’m doing.”
“I enjoy my job,” he added.
