Colt, who wants to be sheriff one day, has visited the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office several times during the past five years. With that in mind, Colt’s family invited Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh and deputies to help him celebrate his milestone.

Sheriff Fitzhugh brought Colt his very own Sheriff’s badge and invited him to become a public safety cadet when he turns 14.

Also making a special trip to Colt’s celebration, Sgt. Bryant Gregory arrived Sheriff Woody and his best friend, Buzz Lightyear, from the “Toy Story” movie. Gregory also coordinated with other sheriff’s deputies, Rutherford County Fire-Rescue firefighters and Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services paramedics and EMTs to surprise Colt.

Colt visited with Deputy Sarah Blair and K9 Appie. Colt got to pet the K9, but his attention quickly turned to the arrival of another law enforcement officer. Deputy Cody Dider pulled up and allowed the 7-year-old to try on some heavy-duty SWAT gear, that came complete with a bulletproof vest and helmet.
