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.
