Temple police are currently investigating a situation that left a 6-year-old girl outside of their department.

According to a report from KXXV, a young child was left outside of the Temple Police Department on East Avenue A  on Wednesday afternoon.

A member of the Police department noticed the child alone in the roadway and went outside to investigate. When it was determined that the child was left there intentionally, officers transferred the girl into the custody of Child Protective Services.

Officers currently believe that the girl's mother is the person who dropped her off at the station. An investigation is currently underway.

With so many cases of child abuse in Central Texas, I am relieved to know that the girl is now in a safe environment.
