TEXARKANA, Texas – (KTAL/KMSS) The Texarkana, Texas, police force is an extra man strong with the addition of their newest honorary officer. 

“He is enthralled with everything policeman,” said Linda Bailey, state executive director of Evergreen Life Services. “The cars, the handcuffs the guns, the services they provide our community.”

Each week, Samuel Lindsey patrols the Knights of Columbus, keeping watch over the attendees of the group’s persons with disabilities dance. 

“There’s something about him,” said Michael Gomez with the Knights of Columbus. “He comes in here, he acts like an officer, he protects us.”

Lindsey even carries a badge. Now, the Texarkana, Texas, Police Department has named him an honorary officer. 

“He would’ve been a good officer,” said Gomez. “And so I wanted to give the opportunity for the Lord to bless him and that’s what the police officers did, they blessed him.”
