VIDEO: Michigan Mother-Son Duo Join the Same Police Force

First they attended the police academy together, and now a mother and son team have been sworn in as officers on the Flint (MI) Police Department.

When Maria Reed applied to the academy at Mott Community College, her son Dion followed.

"I always used to play cops and robbers with the neighborhood boys and I was always the cop and they were the robbers," Maria told WJRT TV.

"When I was in fourth grade, we wrote a plan of where we would be in 10 years and I put step by step what I would do and I put 'Flint Police Department,'" Dion said.
