Tomball boy whose policeman-dad died in 2011 crash gets escort to school from 100 officers

When Alisha Will needs a hand around her Tomball home — moving the refrigerator, hanging a flag above the garage, the kinds of chores her husband would have done — she calls or texts members of her family in blue.

Inevitably, off-duty police officers arrive quickly, offering more help than she needs.

A couple weeks ago, Alisha put out one of those messages. Her 5-year-old son was about to start kindergarten, but he wouldn't be sharing the moment with his father, a Houston police officer who was killed in an on-duty crash in 2011. Wouldn't it be nice, she asked, if a few officers walked the boy down the street to his first day of school?

"All I did was send a text saying, 'Hey, can I have some guys come to the house?'" Alisha said. "I thought four, five, maybe six."

True to form, the officers over-delivered.

Shortly after 7 a.m., as the sun rose on a sticky August morning, about 100 officers — most of them from the Houston Police Department, 13 of them mounted on horseback — arrived at the Will family home. Together, they picked up Kevin Will Jr., dressed sharply in a button-down shirt, blue jeans and sparkling white sneakers, and started the .7-mile trek to Wildwood Elementary School in Tomball.
