A 9-year-old child boy who has been battling cancer at Rhode Island Hospital had his last scheduled treatment and was accompanied by a police escort, including more than half a dozen motorcycles, the police said.

Photos posted on the Warwick Police Department’s Facebook page on Monday show the Warwick boy, identified just as Cal, standing with officers, including two mounted on horseback.

The post said officers from Warwick, Bristol, Cranston, Portsmouth and Woonsocket Police Departments and the Cranston Fire Department were a part of the escort.
