GOOD NEWS 6 Cops Escorted a Fallen Officer's Little Girl to a Father-Daughter Dance
An 8-year-old girl got a special police escort to her father-daughter dance.
Jewel Warren’s father, Memphis police officer Tim Warren, was killed in the line of duty back in 2011.
Recently, Jewel was “at a loss” when she got an invitation to attend a father-daughter dance at her school. So Jewel’s mom reached out to Taylor Amen, the wife of a Memphis police officer, and Donna Kirk, a Memphis firefighter’s widow. They then got in touch with officers about escorting Jewel to the dance.
Jewel showed up to the dance in style in a 1972 Cutlass Supreme with six officers as her dates – each of whom brought her a rose. A salon styled Jewel before the event, and a florist donated the roses, boutonnieres and corsage. Photographer Amanda Swain even captured photos of the special day.
Officer Amen said it was an honor to escort Jewel to the dance.
"We know we cannot replace Tim, but we can be there for his family when we are needed,” he said.
