A North Country youngster who is battling an illness was treated to a parade that included local law enforcement agencies. DEC officers recently joined members of the New York State Police and St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office to grant a special birthday request from a four-year-old battling an illness. “The birthday girl requested a birthday parade from local law enforcement agencies,” a DEC press release said. “Her mom said that while treatment is going well, the parade could help boost her daughter's spirits. ECOs didn't think twice about joining their law enforcement partners to grant this birthday wish.” Police, fire, and rescue vehicles drove past the girl's home with lights flashing as she and her family stood outside waving and enjoying the show. On their second loop around, DEC officers stopped by to drop off some presents, say hello, and share their wishes for a speedy recovery. DEC officers Ryan and Canary meet with the birthday girl.
