The teen, who is suffering with end stage renal disease, received the honor through the Make A Wish Foundation.  He wants to be a SWAT member and experience his dream of working in law enforcement so that he can save lives and catch criminals.

Deputy Chief Mac Venzon, Commander Mark Katre, and SWAT Lieutenant Scott Shaw and Reno Police SWAT members presented Miguel with his honorary SWAT uniform and badge.

He also got to learn about several RPD patrol and SWAT vehicles.
