Indiana Police Officers Welcome New Recruit

INDIANAPOLIS, In. - Police officers from around Indiana gathered at an elementary school Tuesday to welcome a new recruit. 

A six-year-old boy battling cancer joined the Henry County Sheriff's Office as an honorary deputy. 

Brantley Taber has already had cancer twice and maxed out his lifetime doses of chemotherapy. 

His only option for fighting the disease now is through experimental medicine. 

Deputy Derek Bertrand heard Brantley wanted to be a police officer and decided to make his wish come true. 

"It's such a great cause and such a great thing. For him to have just one amazing day and to know that he has so many people that support him and are backing him, it's just a great thing," says Deputy Bertrand. 

Brantley's family has set up a go-fund-me page to help pay for his medical expenses.
