Dre's Make-A-Wish dream become a reality!
Seven-year-old Dremony 'Dre' got his wish to be a police officer for a day at the Hastings City Police Department.
Dre, who is currently in treatment for lymphoma at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital got a tour of the station, along with his very own uniform complete with a hat, handcuffs, and a utility belt. After a swearing-in ceremony, he radioed into dispatch that he was on duty. Dre then toured the Department of Public Works and arrested his brother and grandfather during that tour. He then gave a traffic ticket to another officer during a low-speed chase, before heading over for a tour of the Barry County Dispatch Department.
