Torrance’s newest police officer: 7 year old Drake

Drake Walker Tim Goodrich Torrance City CouncilLast night at City Council, I was witness to something amazing: 7 year old Drake, who has an inoperable cancerous brain tumor, was sworn in as a Torrance police officer, following in the footsteps of his father, a Torrance police sergeant. The entire City Council, dozens of community members, and more than 50 Torrance police officers were on hand to congratulate Drake as he fulfilled his dream.

While this outpouring of community support was incredible, I’m hoping you can help me make it even better.

Will you take a quick moment to send a handwritten card congratulating Drake on his appointment as a Torrance police officer? I will make sure these cards are personally delivered to him and I’m sure it will bring a smile to his face.


You can send your cards to:

Officer Drake Walker

c/o Councilmember Tim Goodrich

3031 Torrance Blvd.

Torrance, CA 90503

If you’d like to take your support a step further, a GoFundMe page has been set up to assist Drake’s family with medical expenses
