9-year-old Pearland boy battling cancer becomes honorary police officer

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) — A 9-year-old who is battling brain and spine cancer received a visit from law enforcement officers and was made an honorary trooper Friday night.

Devarjay Daniel has had 10 surgeries in the last two weeks. So, on Friday he received a special visit from the men he looks up to the most. More than 30 Pearland officers from Precinct 8 and the Department of Public Safety showed up to this house to swear him under oath.

Daniel was dressed in police uniform from head to toe, even sporting a campaign hat. Officers even let him sit in the cop car.

His family said he has always wanted to have a career in law enforcement.

Baby delivered by DPS at DFW airport

It’s not the arrival we’re used to, but we wanted to give a big shoutout to our DFW Airport DPS officers who jumped into action to help deliver a baby outside of one of our terminals earlier this month!

It is believed to be the first baby EVER born at DFW Airport. Mom has asked for privacy, but both she and her newborn are doing well!
