GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Young police-hopeful Solomon Daniels got some backup in slowing down traffic in his neighborhood.

A tweet from the Grand Rapids police shows officers standing beside the 6-year-old holding signs that said “Please slow down,” and “Drive like your kids live here.” Solomon is smiling and dancing for the passing cars.

FOX 17 spoke with Solomon after the police department tweeted a video of him directing traffic in his neighborhood. Solomon’s father said his son has always wanted to be a police officer when he grows up, and they have raised their children to help others.
