CPD helps boys realize their dream of becoming a police officer

CHICAGO – The Chicago Police Department helped a 4-year-old realize his lifelong dream of one day becoming a police officer.

The 4-year-old, a boy named Khalil, was able to spend the day with the force thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the CPD Detail Unit and the CPD Police Academy.

Khalil was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia, a life-threatening blood disorder.

“He gets blood transfusions once a month to minimize a stroke,” said Tasha Parker-Hill, Khalil’s mother.

Khalil was given a behind-the-scenes tour of what it’s like to be a police officer, including a police escort to the academy and a uniform made especially for him.

“He’s obsessed with the police,” Parker-Hill said. “For example, if we’re in the car and he sees the police, he’ll say: “Police, police!”

Khalil’s mother and father said that after a day of police work, Khalil is likely to get back home after watching police videos to become the best officer he can be.
