After two Des Moines police officers were killed in ambush-style attacks early Wednesday morning, citizens have been stepping up and showing their support for law enforcement.
KCCI captured the emotional moment when a woman brought water to an Urbandale police officer.
It shows the woman tearfully hug the officer and tell him that she's sorry about Wednesday's tragedy and she just wants both law enforcement and citizens to make it home safe to their families.
KCCI reported about other touching acts of kindness and support, such as memorials cropping up in front of the Des Moines and Urbandale police stations.
Additionally, Hurts Donut Company in Iowa City/Coralville is selling "blue line donuts" for the fallen officers, with 100 percent of the proceeds to be donated.
