Victoria Police surprise young cancer sufferer for Christmas

Victoria Police have surprised a six-year-old cancer sufferer who aspires to be a policeman when he grows up.

Young James Black was given a tour of the police car, and was presented with a police activity pack and police-themed Lego city set.

Inspector Drew Morgan from the Glen Iris Bayside police tells 3AW’s Nick McCallum James was shocked and full of questions.

‘We gave him a few early Christmas presents and his eyes lit up.’

‘It was probably one of the best days of my career,’ Inspector Morgan told 3AW Drive.

He says one of the highlights for James was having the police radio operator wish him a Merry Christmas.
