Just one day after three Virginia officers were shot, the Prince William County Public Safety Communications 911 center received a 911 call that is going viral online.

The Prince William County YouTube page posted a recording of the heartwarming two-minute call. You can hear the dispatcher attempt to ascertain information from the child, who can be heard thanking the 911 operator and police for their service.

“You’re just a great person. You belong with great people,” the child said. “You’re people-savers.”

There have been five Maryland law enforcement officers killed in ambush-style assaults since January 1, 2016.
