The children of a fallen Phoenix police officer got a special greeting on their first day of school.

Kody and Kaylee Murphy were surprised by police officers and firefighters as they walked into Terramar Elementary School.

Their father Travis Murphy was killed in the line of duty five years ago when Kody was just two weeks old.

Murphy’s fellow officers vowed never to let his family walk alone, and they kept that promise when they showed up for Kody’s first day of kindergarten.
