Man With Down Syndrome Sworn In as Honorary Police Officer, Days Before His Birthday
This Kentucky man has Down syndrome, but his ultimate birthday wish came true when he was sworn in as an honorary police officer in time for his birthday.
The ultimate birthday wish has come true for a Kentucky man with Down syndrome after he was sworn in as an honorary police officer just before he turned 23.
Brennan Wheatley has wanted to be a cop since he was a kid.
And just days before his birthday, his dreams became reality when he was named a Campbellsville police officer in a ceremony attended by friends and family.
"Officer Wheatley is ready to go," Campbellsville Police Chief Pat Thompson announced after the swearing in ceremony, WLEX18 reported.
He was presented with a badge and uniform before being dispatched to duty right away.
He even cuffed a perpetrator before loading him into the backseat of the patrol car.
Warren told WLEX18: "He reminds us every day of what it's like to help people."
