ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - A young boy was awarded a St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Junior Deputy Badge by a SJSO deputy.
Viewer Kristine Gill emailed the photo of the interaction between Deputy Rafael Fuentes and her grandson Emerson to Action News Jax.
She said Emerson was playing in his driveway with his parents and Deputy Fuentes stopped to award the boy a Junior Deputy Badge.
Fuentes even turned on his siren and lights for him, Gill said.
Gill wrote that it is nice to see "great officers out there."
Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan said Fuentes "is very involved with children to include Special Olymipics and our Police Athletic League. He is currently our Guy White Recipient, which is our Deputy of the Year."
