Amazing Police Department Granted a Teen Wish to Be a Police Officer
Thanks to the efforts of Sgt. Joey Morrison, a terminally ill teen was granted his wish to be a Police Officer. Cody Roark has Down syndrome, congenital heart disease, chronic kidney disease and heart failure, and his mother, Starr Bowers, said she doesn’t know how long her son has to live. Our agency was honored to host Cody and his family on April 5th and to swear Cody in as Officer for the Day.
After his swearing in ceremony, Cody toured his new department and then hit the streets is search of any wrong-doers. Cody was quickly called upon to check out a suspicious person (thanks to J. Brown, played by Parks and Rec Director Chad Raby). When Cody found out the man had a warrant, he slapped on the cuffs and lead Mr. Brown to Sgt. Morrison’s vehicle. Shortly after that, Cody was walking the halls of Granite Falls Middle School to make sure the students and staff were safe.
This time with Officer Cody is truly why we are Police Officers. We always look for an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. Officer Cody embodied that attitude on April 5, 2017 because he definitely made a huge difference in the lives of the people he met that day.
