Hodgenville has welcomed an honorary police officer in the form of a concerned 13-year-old.
Looking out for his younger sister, Noah Selman wrote a letter to the Hodgenville Police Department asking for stronger safety measures in a residential area where cars were speeding.
“We wanted to let him be part of the solution. So we actually swore him in using the same oath the police department uses. We gave him a fabric badge and then we took him back out to his house. We gave him the laser, showed him how to use it, and he sat there and was able to track the cars to see how fast they were going. He had a blast and so did we,” stated Hodgenville Chief of Police James Richardson.
At just 13, Noah is Hodgenville’s first ever honorary police officer.
