Rockwall police honor young boy who beat cancer [Video]

A Rockwall boy has just beaten cancer has been welcomed home by his heroes, the police and firefighters.

Six-year-old Bennett Hernandez was diagnosed with Stage 2 Lymphoma and has been under treatment at Children's Hospital in Dallas. He started chemo-therapy and started calling cancer "the bad guys" saying he wanted to "arrest the bad guys" just like the police do.

Recently finishing his treatments, Bennett and his parents were told he is cancer-free.

After coming home, the Rockwall Police Department organized a parade of police cars from Dallas and Rockwall, fire trucks and Sheriff's Office squad cars right down Bennett's street.

Rockwall Police Chief Max Geron gave Bennett what police call a "challenge coin" intended as a keepsake for a little boy who has said he wants to grow up to be a police officer.
