'Kid Cop' from Kansas helps keep his community safe

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - “Police Officer” Oliver may only be 5-years-old, but he’s already taking on huge responsibilities.

The Overland Park, Kansas native wakes up and puts his uniform on every morning to patrol the streets and make sure everything is okay. When everything checks out, he is onto his next job: looking for speeders with his radar gun.

“He helps Leawood police officers when he can and sits on Mission Road with his radar gun,” said mom Brandi Davis. “He had been issuing a few tickets, which cost a kiss on the cheek!”

His mom said he got the uniform for Christmas and has not taken it off since. He even has customized tickets he gives out to neighbors that say “Officer Oliver gave me a ticket.”

Plus, he's already gotten some great experience training with some of Kansas City’s finest. Below, you can see him working  with a police officer from Overland Park and officers from Leawood.
