Escondido resident David Carlin was set to celebrate his 6th birthday on August 22. When David grows up he wants to be a police officer. His mother said of him, “He is always making sure everyone is following the rules.” Due to COVID-19 restrictions, David’s birthday celebration was not going to pan out how he wanted. That’s when his mother Jaclyn reached out to the Police Department for help. On his birthday, members from the Escondido Police and Fire departments participated in a drive-by birthday celebration for David. He was thrilled and was decked out in his police costume for full effect.
