PRINCE GEORGE - Police-themed birthday parties are all the rage with young boys, often complete with badges and hats, but not all young boys get to have actual cops at their birthday party too.

When Cpl. Dave Tyreman found out four-year-old Capper was hosting a police-themed birthday party on June 20 he decided to roll up to the house in his cruiser and blast the horn.

The Prince George officer says he was greeted by a ‘swarm of kids’ at the front door who immediately rushed out to inspect the car and have some fun.

“It’s usually the party with the teenagers that they all run out the back door, not the front door,” Tyreman jokes.

The corporal, who was joined by Const. Trevor Hurley clad in red serge, says he made a point to join the party so he could connect with kids and show them the person behind the badge.

“We are real people. We are mothers and fathers in every community,” Tyreman says. “Any time we can bridge those gaps, or build positive relationships with our youth, me personally - I’m all for that.”

Tyreman says he enjoyed connecting with the kids since his own are ‘big and gone now.' He gifted Capper a small badge of his own to match his dress-up uniform as well.

“He was just tickled pink. His uniform was priceless,” he says.
