Tyler’s birthday party began at the police station, where he wore his own uniform as he was sworn in as honorary police chief for a day.

Tyler stopped at his school to see his friends before continuing to another celebration at Wrights Chicken Farm, in Burrillville.

Nicole Jacobs, NECN:

A little boy with leukemia, who has always been a big fan of police officers and firefighters, is getting a one-of-a-kind birthday treat.

All Tyler Seddon wanted was cards from first responders for his seventh
birthday, but they are giving him a whole lot more than that.

Police are swearing-in Tyler as chief for the day, and a large celebration is taking place in Burrillville, Rhode Island.

He’s also being driven around in a cruiser and is guest of honor at a birthday party attended by hundreds of firefighters, police officers and first responders from several states.
