HAYWARD — A six-year-old girl missing one hand received a chance to live her dream of being a police officer on Wednesday. The opportunity stemmed from a chance encounter with two East Bay officers.

Chief Sheryl Boykins of the Cal State East Bay Police Department rolled with a new partner Wednesday, six-year-old Sydney Bridgeland. Sydney spotted the chief and an officer with the Hayward Police Department eating lunch on Tuesday.

The two officers were so taken by Sydney’s spirit that they invited her for a tour of each of their departments. Sydney got to take in the view from Cal State’s campus and watch a police dog demonstration at Hayward Police headquarters, along with sitting inside the department’s SWAT van.
