It's not the type of video you typically see on the news from a police dashboard camera. And now it's spreading across social media.

A Rosenberg, Texas, police officer pulls his squad car into an apartment complex where a young boy is flipping a football in his hands. In the video, the boy walks off screen left and then goes out for a pass.

The officer is playing catch with the kid, and Rosenberg police says it's how they want officers to reach out to children in their community.
