On March 30, 2019, officers were on a traffic stop on Brigham Rd when a young boy was on his toy police motorcycle walking with his father and stopped close by. After the officers cleared the stop, the officers invited them over to a business parking lot to take a picture with their patrol cars.
Since then we learned that this was 4-year-old Gauge Dolce. His parents are Carlie Eck and Jeremy Dolce. Gauge got the motorcycle for Christmas as he wants to grow up to be a police officer. We’re told that when ever he’s in a car he makes sure everyone is buckled and not speeding.
We wanted to thank Gauge by honoring him with a T-Shirt with his name and badge on it. We welcomed Gauge and his parents to the Police Department where he was presented his shirt by Chief David Ortolano and met the officers that he backed up, Sgt. Chris Witkowski and Officer Matt Goss.
