California boy, 5, sworn in as junior officer by cops at his birthday party

A boy in California loves the police, and got a special birthday treat as he turned 5 years old from the men and women in blue.

The Santa Ana Police Department sent over a few of its officers Saturday afternoon to the party of the boy named Ewinn — “to swear him in as a Jr. officer.”

Cpl. Caprice Kirkpatrick told Fox News on Sunday night that the boy wants to be a police officer when he grows up, so they brought over soccer balls and cones as gifts and gave him a sticker of a police badge.
