February 17, 2016 The Alabama State Police found a request on Facebook by Victoria Merritt whose child Logan has been in the hospital for brain surgeries. Troopers have certainly stepped up to the task turning his room into a virtual sub-station. The boy named Logan has been made an Honorary Alabama State Trooper! Logan has had 2 and is currently waiting on his 3rd brain surgery. State Police visits are certainly putting a smile on his face.
Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Posted on their Facebook page:
Victoria Merritt recently posted a request on Facebook for her son Logan, whose dream is to become an Alabama State Trooper.
“We’re trying hard to find one or a regular officer in the Birmingham area that would be willing to come by Logan’s hospital room and cheer him up. If anyone can help please let me know. Logan has had 2 brain surgeries in the last 7 days and is awaiting his 3rd later this week. This will also be his 8th surgery since birth. He’s recovering slowly and I think seeing a “fellow officer” would help him greatly!”
Well, Capt. Johnny Tubbs, right, commander of ALEA’s Highway Patrol Post in Birmingham; Sgt. Tim Doyal, center; and Trooper John Cleveland, visited Logan today. Capt. Tubbs said he would have stayed all day if he could have.
