Longview resident Chelsea DeCamp, who has Angelman syndrome, sat giddy in her front yard Wednesday afternoon cheering with anticipation and signing "cop" to her nearby Adam's Place caretakers who arranged a special present for her. Moments later four Longview police vehicles arrived and officers sang "Happy Birthday" to DeCamp in celebration of her 30th birthday. Because of COVID-19 social distancing orders, DeCamp was unable to celebrate her birthday with a party alongside family and friends as she usually would, but that didn't make this year's celebration any less special, according to mother Cheryl Brackett. Brackett said DeCamp has had a fascination with law enforcement since childhood. "Longview Police coming here means the world to (Chelsea)," Brackett said.
