La. Cop Makes Disabled Teen a Cop for Birthday

January 25, 2013  | 

A Louisiana police officer has gone above and beyond the call of duty by making a mentally disabled and autistic boy's dream come true.

Blaize Richard's life dream has been to be a police officer, said his mother, Angie Richard, so for his 18th birthday on July 28, she coordinated a visit from one of the Jennings, La., Police Department's officers, who presented Blaize with his own police uniform. Several weeks later, Blaize also was able to visit to the department.

After word of Blaize's dream spread within the department, Officer Mike Hill took the boy under his wing—visiting him often and even coming by the family home when Hill received a new squad car.

What a relief to read a positive story about law enforcement. Many Officers do things like this all the time and they aren't always recognized for it.
