The Troy, New York police department added another officer to the force- 10-year-old JP Honsinger. JP was sworn in as an honorary officer Friday. Donning his badge and uniform, he was ready to protect the streets of Troy. A special day for a special young boy fighting a personal battle. JP was diagnosed with Nieman-Pick Disease, a rare degenerative illness. JP had a pretty busy day with partner Kyle Jones, keeping the streets safe.
