On Friday, August 3rd, Undersheriff Troy Clausen swore in Nate Samoylich as a Special Deputy for the day. 9 year old, Nate has Leukemia and his dream job has always been to become a Police Officer. Once we heard his wish, we wanted to make him a part of our team.

Special Deputy Samoylich was issued a uniform, badge, and gear bag containing sheriff's office goodies. Nate started his workday enjoying hot chocolate and donuts. The break was quickly over when Marion County Circuit Court Judge Channing Bennett summoned the young deputy to his courtroom to provide security.

Leaving the courthouse Deputy Samoylich and Sergeant Jason Hickam got on the police radio notifying the dispatcher that they were in service to protect the residents and visitors of Marion County. Inside their Marion County Sheriff's Office Ford Mustang Deputy Samoylich and Sergeant Jason Hickam patrolled the streets on their way to our Central District Office.

At the office, Nate processed a crime scene, hung out with the SWAT Team and played with K9's. After a full day Nate patrolled his way home where he signed off at his house, leaving the streets of Marion County for the loving arms of his family.

Sergeant Jason Hickam, stated, "Today we made a dream come true and there is no better feeling." "Thank you Nate for choosing the Marion County Sheriff's Office and allowing us to be a part of your special day."

**Media** Public Information Officer Deputy Ethan Griffith is available for details and interviews. The Samoylich family is very thankful for Nates opportunity and has agreed to allow us to share his story. The family however does not wish to conduct media interviews.
