A ten-year-old cancer patient became an honorary police officer thanks to multiple law enforcement agencies who recently gathered in Mercedes, Texas.
Devarjaye “DJ” Daniel has been fighting terminal brain and spinal cancer, but he has always had a dream to be a policeman, KRGV reported Thursday.
Officers with agencies from Hidalgo, Cameron, and Willacy counties swore the young man in on Wednesday at the Livestock Show Arena. Photos showed the boy with officers as he made his way to Mercedes for the big event.
“On my way to Mercedes Tx down by Texas Border for another wonderful swearing in ceremony Chief Hidalgo I’m on my way!!!” Devarjaye wrote.
Social media users congratulated him and wished him safe travels on the journey.
