6-year-old girl battling cancer made honorary police officer

U.S. & World

FREEPORT, TX (WCMH) — A dream comes true for a 6-year-old girl fighting cancer.

Abigail Arias has been fighting the disease for two years.

Despite that battle, Abigail says she still wanted to become a police officer when she grows up.

On Thursday the Freeport Police Department made that dream come true by making her an honorary officer.

“In my 27 years, this thing will be the best thing ever for my career, and it should be for everybody here. It’s more than just putting bad guys in jail,” said Freeport Police Department Chief Ray Garivey.

“It meant lots of excitement and lots of love,” Abigail told KPRC.  

After the ceremony, Abigail showed off her uniform, her badge, and her handcuffs.
