Harrison Humphries was born without arms or legs, but that hasn’t stopped the 6-year-old from Georgia from wanting to become a detective.
Veteran Officer Rolf Seiferheld of the Duluth Police Department met the mighty Harrison on a patrol downtown a few months ago and the two have formed a strong friendship.
Harrison told the officer that he wants to work in law enforcement to “help people get better,” 11 Alive reported.
It’s the same reason Seiferheld signed up to be an officer: “Be nice and treat people how you want to be treated. Show them the respect they deserve,” he told the news outlet.
After the two found that their views on law enforcement coincided, Officer Seiferheld decided that he wanted to mentor the young man to help him achieve his dreams.
Now the two of them meet every Friday during the officer’s center patrol, and they both agree it’s the best part of their week.
As the officer talks to Harrison about what life is like in law enforcement, the 6-year-old takes inventory of the officer’s gear.
Harrison’s mother, Tara, praised the big-hearted officer for taking time out of his week to train her son to help him achieve her dream.
Not many people will take the time or sometimes they are scared,” she told 11 Alive News.
She says that her son is a determined young man and when he sets his mind to something, she usually succeeds.
Harrison was born without arms, and without his hips, fibulas, and thighbones; doctors told his parents that he would never be able to walk, feed himself or do anything, his mother said.
It turns out that he can do everything himself, just by using his feet instead of his hands.
So he brushes his teeth, he brushes his hair, he tries to get dressed,” Tara said.
“He wants to be a detective, or the police chief in charge.”
Now, with Seiferheld by his side, he has no doubt that his son will achieve his dreams.
“I think this is a relationship that can continue to grow, a partnership, which is what a community should be,” she said.
