Officer Jalisha Cracks Case, Rescues Louie

ST. LOUIS - Jalisha doesn’t imagine herself being a superhero like the majority of her peers. Her dream is a little more realistic. She just wants to be a cop.

“I would love to learn how to use handcuffs and have an official police uniform,” Jalisha said. “I would feel very special if I got to arrest a bad guy and people cheered for me.”

At just 14 years old, Jalisha shows quite a bit of maturity when it comes to thinking about the future. The problem is, Jalisha is battling End Stage Renal Disease, which affects the kidneys and has her waiting for a transplant.

But none of that was going to slow her down Thursday, when she lived her dream thanks to Make-A-Wish of Missouri.

Jalisha started the morning like any other kid battling a serious health condition …with a doctor's appointment at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. But when she got there, she was told that the police department needed her help in solving a crime. Someone had kidnapped Louie, Fredbird and Rampage and was holding them hostage somewhere in St. Louis.

Jalisha took a helicopter ride to the St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy, where she trained with new recruits, had lunch and received her police uniform and badge. From there, it was off to the Edwards Jones Dome, where she interviewed people in search of information that would lead to the whereabouts of the mascots.

She made a stop at Scottrade Center in the afternoon, where the St. Louis Blues and Peabody Opera House staff met her with information regarding the last time they had seen Louie. After receiving several tips and an autographed Vladimir Tarasenko jersey courtesy of Blues President of Business Operations Bruce Affleck, Jalisha was off to Busch Stadium, where she found all three mascots were being held by Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest.

"Thank you very much Make-A-Wish for making my wish come true," Jalisha said after making her arrest.

Jalisha's wish was made possible by Make-A-Wish of Missouri, the St. Louis County Police Department, Mayor Francis Slay, County Executive Charlie Dooley, Maggiano’s Little Italy, the Blues, Cardinals, Rams, NC4 and Don Brown Chevrolet.
