A terminally ill girl had always dreamed of being a cop and catching the bad guys. Little did she know that her heartfelt wish would come true most unexpectedly and profoundly, making her special day even more memorable.


Children are known for their innocence, adorable attitude, and loving hearts. They love dabbling in various areas and are always ready to explore new avenues. Youngsters also hold a whirlpool of talent and creativity and have distinct dreams they are not afraid to fulfill.

While some kids might want to be a teacher or a pilot when they grow up, others can have an affinity for other professions, such as engineers, artists, business professionals, or even police officers. The little one in today's story also had a lifelong dream, which came true in the most beautiful way.

An Unlikely Friendship

Little Zoe lived with her mother, Huyen, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. In July 2022, the mother-daughter duo went to the annual Superhero day at the Manly Bear Cottage, a children's hospice in their hometown, where they met a kind stranger.


Little Zoe decided to opt for a different approach when the elusive bandit got away on the land.

Zoe and Huyen instantly bonded and became friends with the New South Wales Police Force Penguin, Constable Charlie. Before leaving, the cop and little Zoe agreed to meet again, preferably before her birthday.

A Special Invitation

In the second week of August, the NSW Police Force sent a special invitation to Zoe and her mom, Huyen, to come and meet their friend, Constable Charlie. Once the pair arrived, a few cops got down to work and brought a nicely wrapped gift box for little Zoe.


But before they could hand the present to the toddler, a man dressed in a grey hoodie came out of nowhere, grabbed the box, and took off. The NSW task force sought help from little Zoe to remedy the situation, who was quickly dressed in a mini police officer uniform and sent on a mission.

An Exciting Chase

The junior cop joined the NSW police officers to track down the sly bandit in a fast and furious chase across the city. Much to Zoe's surprise, the thief took to the waters in his speedboat.


But there was no stopping the little police officer who followed him across Sydney Harbor with the help of the Marine Area Command. Little Zoe decided to opt for a different approach when the elusive bandit got away on the land.

Mission Accomplished

Shortly afterward, the pint-sized cop enlisted the help of the aviation command and was seen continuing the mission in the air. Dressed in a police vest and adorable beanie, Zoe happily gave instructions to the pilot and enjoyed the mesmerizing view of the Harbor Bridge.

Eventually, Constable Zoe tailed the birthday gift thief in a black police car with the lights blinking and the sirens on and emerged victorious. An officer from the Tactical Operations Unit cradled Zoe as the chase ended.


A Proud Cop

After the thief was taken into custody, the NSW cops returned the birthday gift to its rightful owner. Huyen said her baby girl had a wonderful day and was incredibly proud of herself for catching the thief. She added:

"After the special day [Zoe] concluded that 'It was hard to be a police officer' but she is still sure that she wants to be a police officer in the future."


Happy Birthday

Moreover, Huyen thanked the entire NSW task force for going out of their way to make her little girl's dream come true.

Zoe is battling Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an incurable brain cancer and also one of the most aggressive childhood cancers. Each year, nearly 20 Australian kids are diagnosed with DIPG.

The NSW Police Force shared the heart-melting video of Constable Zoe embarking on her mission on her birthday, August 18, 2022. The caption read:

"Thank you for your incredible bravery, Constable Zoe! From all of us here at NSW Police Force, we wish you the happiest birthday."

We are beyond elated that Zoe lived out her dream to be a cop and had a memorable fourth birthday. Great going, brave little officer. May God watch over this little princess.
