Police department visits son of fallen officer to deliver special gift of little squad car modeled after his daddy’s
When you’re a kid, especially a little boy, all you want when you grow up is to be like your dad – your hero!
And even though a toddler from California lost his police officer father in the line of duty, that fact didn’t change for him.
Newman Police Corporal Ronil Singh, 33, was unfortunately killed in the line of duty on December 26th, 2018 – leaving behind his family and young toddler.
This year, Baby Singh, who was spending his first Christmas season without his dad, got a special surprise from his late father’s colleagues.
On Christmas, the Newman Police Officers Association decided to make baby Singh’s holiday one that he would never forget.
They dramatically pulled up to the toddler’s house on Christmas with a special gift for the young one that would hopefully bring him joy during such a rough time.
In an Instagram post shared on Christmas, Newman police said Singh had always said that his son would grow up to be a police officer just like him, and that he hoped to teach him the ropes one day.

Ronil told his son he was going to grow up to be a police officer and Ronil would teach him. To get his training started early, the Newman Police Officers Association bought Baby Singh his very own patrol car for Christmas and delivered it this morning. Thank you to the Newman resident who wished to remain anonymous for changing the stickers to model it after Ronil’s car. Merry Christmas Baby Singh! #likefatherlikeson #futurek9handler
To get an early start, the association delivered the toddler his very own squad car, which a local anonymous resident modeled to look just like his daddy’s old one.
“Merry Christmas Baby Singh!” the police department posted on Instagram.
Nothing will ever take away the pain of losing a parent, but it’s kind acts like this one which inspire us to have a little more faith in humanity.
