FREEPORT, TX (KPRC/CNN) - A dream comes true for a six-year-old girl fighting cancer.

Abigail Arias has been fighting the disease for two years.

Despite that battle, Abigail says she still wanted to become a police officer when she grows up.

On Thursday, the Freeport Police Department made that dream come true by making her an honorary officer.

"In my 27 years, this thing will be the best thing ever for my career, and it should be for everybody here. It's more than just putting bad guys in jail," said Chief Ray Garivey, with the Freeport Police Department.

"It meant lots of excitement and lots of love," said Abigail.

After the ceremony, Abigail showed off her uniform, her badge and her handcuffs.
