Making a difference

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I came across a lovely story over at the website today.

Jose Rubio-Pavon, aged just 12, is dying with an inoperable brain tumour in Colorado. His dream was to be a police officer.

Jose’s dream came true last week when he was sworn in as a Brighton PD officer.

Officers Anna-Marie Cuney, Levy Slagle and Cpl. Monce Portillo swore him in during a ceremony in his hospice room and presented him with a certificate officially recognizing him as a member of the Brighton Police Department, a police uniform shirt and a junior officer badge.

The fifth grader wore a giant smile as he took the oath of office, Brighton Police said.

Sometimes I love this job.

    A brilliant story which is worthy of publication in every newspaper in the land. Somehow, I doubt that this would have been allowed to happen in this country.
