GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. – Amiene McLeroy loves anything related to police, but she had no idea she would celebrate her birthday with those she admired so much.
McLeroy, 29, lives in Fort Valley, Georgia with her father. She has special needs that have delayed her cognitive development.
She told her father that this year for her birthday all she wanted was a “real party” with balloons, cake and her family.
It was her uncle David McLeroy who took the party at his home in Norcross to the next level.
He contacted the Norcross Police Department and asked if they’d be able to stop by and surprise Amiene.
Her cousin, Ashley Nelson, posted the video of the surprise on Facebook July 9.
Ameine’s face lit up when she saw the officers and police SUV there for her. She took a ride in the SUV, got to try on some of the gear and even got her own badge.
Nelson says Amiene’s favorite part was getting to put her father in the backseat of the police vehicle.
“She absolutely loved it. They went out of their way to make her feel so special. It was awesome,” Nelson said.
