Four-year-old Jason Johnson Jr. of Henry County, Georgia wanted to be a police officer for Halloween. Deputy Bryan Grice made it official with a badge on Oct. 18, 2017. Watch the moment Jason was deputized here.

A 4-year-old Georgia boy became a police officer just in time for a busy Halloween night.

A video posted on Facebook by the mother of Jason Johnson, Jr., shows the boy being deputized by a Henry County deputy this week. Jason plans to be a police officer for Halloween so it’s only fitting that he was sworn-in with enough time to be prepare for the holiday.

Before receiving his badge, Jason was asked to “promise to be a good boy, to listen, to obey, uphold the law, be a good citizen and make the badge proud.”

Jason first thought about being King Kong for Halloween but the costume was too big, his mother Cassie Rich said.

One reason he wanted to be a police officer was because an uncle who Jason thinks is “really cool” also works in public safety as a firefighter, she told The Telegraph.
