    Way to go, officers!

    Live the irony of #23! "Imagine."

    I agree that this little guy is pure awesome. I also agree that we need a blue KCCO. I love my green Keep Calm and my BFM but a LEO KCCO would be the centerpiece in my trophy case.

    Im glad this was not in Los Angeles.. Our mayor would Ham it up and want to make it all about him..
    Good Job to the officers in Bellevue,Washington… Well done..
    How about a follow up… Is he dying, or what?

  • Guam's Derek

    Hey Chive, send him the first Blue KCCO shirt to roll out. I'll pay for it.

    Happiest kid in the world. That's what awesomeness and kindness is really about.

    This is the Department I work for. Little Gage had an unbelievable effect on those that were lucky enough to spend the weekend with him. Especially the Major that is seen in many of the pictures. (He's the one in the last, very touching #35 photo) If you want to pass along a message to our Chief about this event, (seen in #33) she would be happy to hear from you. drop a line to and address it to Chief Pillo. Chive On!

      I know I'm way late to the game on this but I just wrote a letter out and sent it to Chief Pillo. I've been going through some rough times with an on the job injury and looming medical retirement. Coupled with PTSD and severe depression due to some work stuff, I've been feeling really crappy lately.

      This story perked me up and really gave me a boost. Thank you and your department for the work you do and for giving Gage that dream.
