Lompoc Police Cars Sport Fender-Wraps to Honor Police Explorer Fighting Cancer

Kind show of support came as surprise to 14-year-old Noah Scott.

A Lompoc Police Department Explorer fighting leukemia, Noah Scott, and his father, Lompoc police Cpl. Charles Scott, were surprised Monday afternoon at the sight of Scott’s patrol vehicle decked out with a special fender-wrap honoring Noah.

Lompoc police Chief Pat Walsh, with support from the Lompoc Police Foundation, has arranged for all of the city’s marked police vehicles to be outfitted with a custom Team Noah fender-wrap to show support for the 14-year-old police Explorer battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia and his family.

The fender-wraps were created by Jesse Taylor, CEO of Pro Tint in Lompoc, who is himself a cancer survivor. He is providing the wraps to the Police Department at cost.

Charles Scott was asked to go to Pro Tint to pick up his patrol vehicle, and was stunned when he arrived to see the orange fender-wrap honoring his son. Scott then drove his vehicle to show the unsuspecting Noah.

“The Lompoc Police Department, along with the rest of the community, continues to be tremendously supportive of Noah, and it means so much to our family,” Scott said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the Scott family with medical expenses, and is almost $15,000 toward its $25,000 goal. In addition, a Facebook page has been established in support of Noah.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
