NJ teen's wish granted, becomes Las Vegas police officer for the day

WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. -- Riley Carty's wish is coming true.

With an official police escort, he hopped in a limo and zoomed to the Philadelphia Airport. There, he is flying to Las Vegas to become a police officer for the day.

This has been his wish ever since witnessing the law enforcement response to the tragic Las Vegas shooting that occurred on October 1, 2017.

Make-A-Wish New Jersey has partnered with their Southern Nevada counterparts to make Riley's wish come true.

Upon arrival, he will spend a day with the Northwest Area Command as an honorary police officer. He will be proudly wearing a vest, driving in a police car, meeting with officials, exploring a helicopter, spending time with K-9s, and more.
