ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Illinois (KSDK) – St. Clair County Sheriff's deputies received "back up" Sunday from a special unofficial officer.

Garrett, 4, spotted the deputies driving down his street in Caseyville while riding on his police motorbike and stopped them to see if they needed back up for anything, according to the department's Facebook page.

The two officers had responded to an incident in the area, according to Garrett's mom, Meghan Frank.

Garrett flashed his lights for officers, and they responded with a courteous flashing of their lights.

Frank said the experience made her son's day as he hopes to one day join the police force.

The posting on the St. Clair County Sheriff's Facebook page already received more than 70 shares and more than 45 comments.
