VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

There's a new Valdosta Police Officer in town.

The Valdosta Police Department named its first honorary police officer.

Blake Hill has a disability that keeps him from being an officer in the field.

He says he's always looked up to police and appreciates all they do.

"I know that they have a worry that they might not come home to their families but they put all that fear aside and do it anyway. That means a lot to me that people that don't even know a lot of us would do something like that," said Hill.

Hill got a tour of the department, as well as a framed patch and certificate.
