Harrison Humphries, 6, was born with no arms or leg bones, but this hasn’t stopped this Georgia boy from wanting to become a detective.
Veteran officer Rolf Seiferheld from 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐮𝐥𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 met the mighty Harrison on a downtown patrol a few months ago and the two have formed a 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩.
Harrison told the officer he wants to work in law enforcement to “help people get better,”.
It’s the same reason Seiferheld enrolled to be an 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐫: “Be kind, and treat people how you want to be treated. Show them the respect they deserve,” he told.
After the two discovered that their views on law enforcement aligned, Officer Seiferheld decided he wanted to mentor the young boy to help Harrison achieve his dreams.
Now the two meet every Friday during the officer’s downtown patrol — and they both agree it’s the best part of their week.
While the officer talks to Harrison about what life in 𝐥𝐚𝐰 𝐞𝐧𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭
is like, the 6-year-old takes inventory of the officer’s kit.
Tara – Harrison’s mom praised the big-hearted officer for taking time out of his week to coach her son to help achieve his dream.
She told: “Not many people will take the time or sometimes they’re scared,”
According to her, her son is one determined young man and when he puts his mind to something he usually achieves it.
The mother Harrison was born without arms, and without his hips, fibulas and femurs; doctors told his parents he would never be able to walk, feed himself, or do anything.
Turns out Harrison can do everything himself, just using his feet instead of his hands.
Tara said: “So he brushes his teeth, his hair, tries to get himself dressed,”
“He wants to be a detective, or the head police in charge.”
Now with Seiferheld by his side she has no doubt Harrison will achieve his dreams.
She said: “I think this is a relationship that can continue to grow, a partnership, which is what a community should be,”
