Columbus police stop at 6-year-old boy's home to play tic-tac-toe


Marcy Conley called Columbus police to see if they wanted to play tic-tac-toe with her 6-year-old grandson, and they jumped at the chance.

“How are you doing, Jason? I hear we are playing a game of tic-tac-toe?” said Columbus Police Officer Kyle Davis as he walked up the steps to Jason’s house.

The officer could be seen playing the classic game with Jason through the glass door — making sure everyone still stays safe.

Nineteenth precinct officers showed up and took the challenge, though it seemed it was a losing battle for the officers.

Officer Davis admitted he lost almost every game.

“Just because they are really cool. They do a lot of community service around here and it's important for the kids to see the positivity. That's why I contacted them,” Conley said.

“It's good to get out here and let people see us more in a different light than just enforcing the law and throwing handcuffs on people. It's always fun to interact, especially with the kids,” Officer Davis said.
