5-Year-Old Deputy Jayden Joins Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office For Mother’s Dying Wish

Sacramento County, CA –  One very special little boy, Jayden, had his dream come true on Thursday, March 16, 2017, thanks to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.

Jayden is five-years-old and has always dreamed of becoming a police officer.  His mother is dying from a disease known as Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis.  Her last wish was to see him become a police officer.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department made Jayden’s dream and his mother’s last wish a reality on that special Thursday.

Officers from their Community Relations Unit, Youth Services Unit, K9 Detail, Air Operations and North Patrol made it happen.  One special little boy was given his very own Sacramento County Sheriff’s uniform, gear belt, and vehicle, as the agency made him an Honorary Deputy Sheriff.

Jayden also got to learn how handcuffs worked, got to practice some self-defense moves, and watched a special STAR (Sheriff’s Tactical Air Resource) flyover just for him.  He also got to meet K9 Asko, and watched a K9 Asko demonstration.

And he received some very special gifts that included K9 T-shirts, stickers, special toys, and challenge coins.

In a Facebook post, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office talked about Jayden, his mom, his special day, and the “strength of a family.”    Welcome to the family, Deputy Jayden.  We are proud to have you.

Blue Lives Matter’s National Spokesman discussed the day on the latest Blue Lives Radio Podcast.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Deputy Jayden and his mother. You can see the video of Deputy Jayden’s special day here:
