Troopers with the New York State Police do so much more than arrest criminals. Sometimes they even get arrested themselves.

Trooper Tim Murray found out Christian wants to be a police officer when he grows up. So he stopped by for a visit and let the little boy arrest him, handcuffs and all. "A very important part of our job is getting to know our community and the members in it," the New York State Police shared.

We all dreams of what we want to be when we grow up, but many never follow through on those dreams. Let's hope this is just the first step in Christian's dream to become a police officer. If nothing else, it's a memory he'll have for years to come and there's even pictures to prove it.
