This year has already been memorable for six-year-old Rylan Pruitt. The young boy was sworn in as an honorary officer by Fort Worth Police Chief Neil Noakes on Wednesday afternoon. Pruitt is battling brain cancer, and he has dreamed of being a peace officer.

In addition to his own badge and uniform, Rylan was issued a certificate verifying his new role. After reciting the oath of office, Chief Noakes told Rylan he was proud of him.
