January 25, 2013  |

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.
