RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A 10-year-old boy from Ridgewood who had been named an honorary police chief was given full police honors at his funeral Tuesday after losing his battle with cancer last week.

Bagpipes played and dozens of police officers from across New Jersey stood at attention as Michael Feeney’s flag-draped casket arrived at Mount Carmel Church.

“I lost a partner today,” said police Chief John Ward, fighting back tears.

Earlier this year, the Hawes Elementary School fifth-grader was named Ridgewood’s honorary police chief for 2013, but he died Friday after a four-year battle with cancer.
