What have we accomplished?

A child named Chris Greicius who is 6 years old and is diagnosed with leukemia. He has always wanted to be a police officer and to catch bad guys. Officer Austin heard his request and worked with officers in Arizona department to plan a experience for Chris. The next day Chris became a police officer and rode on a helicopter.
