WATCH: Duck family gets police escort to Florida lake

This will make you smile

LAKELAND, Fla. (CNN/Gray News) – A family of ducks got a fancy police escort in central Florida.

The feathered family was spotted in the middle of a busy part of town, so Lakeland Police Officer Todd Bailey personally escorted the group to safety.

He walked along with the ducks, helping them through twists, turns and barriers.

The department posted a video of their adventure on its Facebook page.

A Hop, Skip, and a Waddle to Lake Mirror!

Earlier this morning LakelandPD Officer Bailey was on patrol when he noticed a mother duck and her 12 ducklings walking from South Florida Ave down Pine Street towards the station. Since they were in the middle of the street, Officer Bailey pulled his patrol car behind the family to ensure they would safely make it down the street. But, as you will see from the video, they made a few detours and hit a couple of barriers, a tad too big for little webbed feet. Officer Bailey walked alongside the family through each twist and turn, making sure they got to Lake Mirror safe and sound for a cool dip in the water. Even during times of uncertainty, there are always things around us to smile about! Thanks Officer Bailey for taking care of these cuties.
