- 6-year-old Vontino Vogt wants to be a cop when he grows up
- He celebrated his birthday on 30 August
- Kimberley Flying Squad Unit made his day special by driving him to school in a flying squad vehicle
A six-year-old boy who aspires to be a police officer got the birthday of his dreams yesterday thanks to the South African Police Service.
Vontino Vogt, from Kimberley in the Northern Cape, has dreams of joining the SAPS Flying Squad when he grows up, Briefly.co.za learned.
The Kimberley Flying Squad Unit therefore made his birthday special by driving him to school in a Flying Squad vehicle.
According to a post on the SAPS Facebook page, Vontino's classmates made a guard of honour for him and saluted him when he arrived.
Flying Squad members then showered him with presents and gave all Grade R pupils at the school safety tips.
A happy Vontino thanked the officers for their heartwarming gesture, declaring, "This is my best birthday party."
His mom also praised the SAPS for their good work in keeping their community safe and urged them to keep it up.
SAPS officers often go beyond the call of duty. Briefly.co.za recently reported how cops in Eastern Cape helped a boy who was living in an open shack.
