First Responder Friday: Suffolk County Police Officer Thomas Joy

SUFFOLK COUNTY (WABC) -- This week's First Responder Friday shoutout goes to Suffolk County Police Officer Thomas Joy!

Officer Joy went to Daniel Street Elementary School in February to make student Jaxson Ginsberg a junior police officer.

The first-grader is in remission for leukemia, and he wants to be a police officer and even dressed as one for Halloween.

Jaxson got his badge from Officer Joy!
