9-Year-Old ‘Donut Boy' Visits Alexandria Police Department

A 9-year-old boy from Florida is visiting Virginia as part of his mission to thank each police officer in the United States.

Tyler Carach started a campaign called "I DONUT Need a Reason to Thank Cops" with the goal of meeting police officers from all over the country. Calling himself "Donut Boy," Tyler stopped by the Alexandria Police Department as part of his visit for Police Week.

Tyler took a tour of the headquarters, visited roll call and meetings, and learned about alternate light sources in the crime scene investigation division.

The young boy has been visiting police stations since 2016 to thank them for their work and present them with a donut.
