Police officers from Osceola, Wisconsin, made a special appearance at a boy's seventh birthday party Saturday.

Three weeks ago, Brock went to the police station to deliver handwritten invitations to the entire department, his mother Lindsay Jolly wrote on Facebook.

And on Saturday, five officers showed up to his birthday party.

He even got to put the officers "under arrest" and put them in the back of the squad car, Jolly notes.

"In a time where officers get a bad rap, this proves just how much officers truly care about our communities," Jolly wrote.

Brock, who is on the Autism spectrum, wants to be a police officer, and in the past few weeks, officers with the Osceola Police Department have taken the time to get to know him.

Brock even got to meet the chief of police in early August, Jolly says.
