Gresham police suprise teenage fan
Gresham Police officers made a surprise visit to a teenager at the Shriners Hospital for Children who has dreams of going into law enforcement.
Christopher Bond, 16, who is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, was in the hospital for surgery. Now a Pendleton resident, Bond used to live in Gresham, and loves the community and police department, often sending messages and commenting via social media.
So, Gresham's Sergeant Hung Nguyen and Officer Ben Costigan decided to pay their young fan a visit, bringing him a hat and patch. They also chatted with Bond about law enforcement and how he could get involved.
"Chris' attitude was amazing and I was quite impressed with the young man, especially considering he had just had surgery," Costigan said.
