Kentucky State Police Post 04, Elizabethtown, KY
(ELIZABETHTOWN, KY.) - Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 04 helps to make a wish come true for a six-year-old boy suffering from terminal brain cancer.
KSP Post 04 was contacted by the family of six-year-old David Turner, Jr., requesting we assist in helping make David's wish of riding in a police cruiser come true.
David was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) Grade IV cancer, an aggressive form of cancer that originates within the brain stem. KSP Post 04 Commander, Captain Matt Johnson, asked for everyone's assistance within KSP from Commissioner's officer on down to assist with not only making David's wish come true, but go above and beyond and make him a KSP Trooper for a day. Captain Johnson stated, "It is an honor to have been asked to help make David's wish come true. We didn't just want to give him a ride; we also wanted to let him wear a uniform and campaign hat while riding in one of our gray cruisers."
On Monday, June 11 at 10amCT/11amET, KSP Post 04 will be hosting several events for David at their new Post, at 820 New Glendale Road in Elizabethtown. Post 04 will be hosting the KSP Special Response Team, KSP Aircraft Branch, KSP Canine Branch, Elizabethtown Police Department and Elizabethtown Fire Department. Each group or organization will be showing off their equipment and skills for David to see firsthand. At 12pmCT/1pmET, KSP Post 04 with the assistance of the KSP Training Academy will be conducting pit maneuvers at Addington field in Elizabethtown.
Captain Johnson went on to say, "Monday will be David's day and he will be able to experience the pride, honor and tradition of being a Kentucky State Police Trooper'.
