NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – A young Norman girl named Zari turned 9 on Saturday, but she couldn’t have the birthday party she deserved because of the coronavirus crisis. So Norman police made the day a little extra special for her.
Norman Police Department officers lined up in their flashing squad cars outside Zari’s home, and through their loudspeakers sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to the giddy 9 year old.
The special gift came about after Zari’s mother posted a Facebook message asking people to send Zari birthday cards.
Norman Judge Christi Chesley saw the message.
“I saw it and called Lt Savage and asked if he would go by and do sirens or waive. He organized three other officers to help,” Chesley said.
In addition to singing ‘Happy Birthday’, Norman’s finest also gave Zari some Norman PD swag, including pens, a bracelet and a commemorative token.
