Gonzales Police grants special boy's wish

Contributed Report @WeeklyCitizen

The Gonzales Police Department doesn’t just protect and serve, it goes that extra mile to make sure “our residents know we support their needs as much as they support ours.”

On Saturday, September 27, a request came in from a special needs boy named Cole who wanted the police to come to his sixth birthday party.

Two officers, Duane Carpenter and Jimmie Dunaway, were “more than happy to oblige.”

“It's the small things like this that allow us to forgot all the bad stuff and actually help to make our jobs all the better,” Det. Steve Nethken said in a release. “Hope you had a very happy birthday, Cole. We're looking forward to celebrating with you next year.”
