A 9-year-old East Lyme girl battling cancer visited the Waterford Police Department on Tuesday night.
Madeline Guarraia, of East Lyme, attended roll call, took notes with the other officers and went with Sgt. Seymour in a cruiser. Her father was a in nearby cruiser.
Madeline is battling cancer for the third time. Eyewitness News first introduced viewers to her back in the fall on Better Connecticut and earlier this year, the town decorated their homes for Christmas early for a young girl, who is battling cancer.
But, Madeline was badge #8 when she worked for the Waterford Police Department during the Tuesday evening shift.
Madeline even got the chance to pull over a driver that went through a red light. When Madeline learned it was one of her teachers, she gave her a ticket.
She even made some “real stops” and witnessed an arrest. She radioed into dispatch and communicated all night with dispatchers.
“We appreciated having the backup today Madeline, thanks so much for your hard work, we look forward to seeing you on another shift,” Waterford Police Department posed on its Facebook page
