With sirens blaring and a line of officers saluting him, 7-year-old Liam Lindsey arrived at Gloucester Township police headquarters for a special ceremony where he was sworn in as an honorary member of the force.
Liam has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia for 2 years, enduring chemotherapy, spinal taps and everything that goes along with cancer treatment.
But it’s never dampened his dream to be a cop.
“Because they’re the coolest job in the world,” Liam said
“He just wants to help people. He’s got a really great heart and he’s just a wonderful kid,” Liam’s mom Lauren said.
The nurse at Glendora Elementary where Liam’s a student told the school resource officer how much Liam loved police officers and that led to Monday’s outpouring of support.
