“Mom hurried to grab her phone as soon as she noticed the police. The youngsters in the neighborhood continue to call Sergeant C.B. Fleming ‘Batman.’
Despite the fact that he doesn’t roam the city with a black cape and a mask or need a utility belt full of amazing gadgets to draw attention.
In South Hill, Virginia, the 42-year-old Fleming is well-known, especially among kids.
It was a gas leak that made this officer’s name popular. He ensured the children were safe throughout the afternoon. And that’s how they started calling him by the sweet nickname. A truly beautiful nickname.
Thanks to a rescue call made last week, Fleming and some other rescuers arrived at Iesha Roper’s home. Initially, he spoke with Roper-Boswell after making sure the house was secure.
Shortly after, the 28-year-old mother confided in Fleming, telling him that her daughter, niece, and other neighborhood kids were afraid of the police.
After their conversation, Fleming sat on the sidewalk to play with the kids. Having a new playmate clearly amazed and delighted the children.
A person in uniform! Roper-Boswell couldn’t believe it. She made sure to capture the touching moment with a short video using her phone.
Numerous people have seen the video on Facebook and YouTube. Four of Fleming’s children are biological, and he also has two adopted children.
He has spent the last 15 years working for the South Hill Police Department in Virginia and has always made it a point to positively impact his neighborhood.
According to Fleming, ‘I’ve always tried to do that.’ ‘When I started working here, I realized there was much more than writing tickets and misbehaving all the time.
I reasoned that the only thing that mattered was if I could make someone’s day a little better.’ He is a shining example of the community.
‘It’s amazing. The only legitimate way to describe C.B. is with this word,’ says Roper-Boswell. ‘The relationship he has with the kids is just fantastic.
My daughter just has to call C.B. if she needs help instead of calling 911, to reassure her that she’s safe.
I’m glad he included this in his duties. He’s changed my daughter’s and niece’s lives. That’s genuine public service.'”
