Sawyer absolutely loves and admires police officers, and has for quite some time. Last winter he received a police uniform as a gift. He wears it quite frequently, almost daily. He wants to be a policeman someday.

For months he has been asking to go visit the police officers at the station and take a tour. The family knew because of COVID-19 that wouldn’t be possible. So, on Tuesday May 26, they called the Waterville Police Station to see if a police officer could come to the house and visit Sawyer.

Within minutes an officer was at the house – Officer Steve Brame. Sawyer is still anxiously waiting for the day he can actually go to the police station but the picture speak for itself as to how excited he was to finally meet a police officer. He had many questions and officer Brame was so patient and answered all of his questions. This was really a dream come true for this little four year old.
