Cuba Police: Special officer goes on patrol next month

From the Cuba Police Department: The Cuba Police Department is proud to announce that Honorary CPD Officer Jonathan Bennett will be on patrol for the June Dairy Week parade with Cuba Police Officers! Jonathan has a rare disease called Perthes Disease. Jonathan has always wanted to be a police officer and a few years ago we held a surprise meet and greet with Jonathan where he was made an honorary police officer for the Cuba Police Department. Jonathan has undergone several surgeries and treatments and was even in a wheel chair for an extended period of time but is now doing well. He will be in uniform and on patrol with a Cuba Police Officer making sure the parade goes smoothly and handing out candy to everyone watching the parade! Please make sure if you see him you wave and say hi!
